Happy Earth Day! We are celebrating by sharing everything you need to grow a plant: a little biodegrable pot, some potting soil and a couple of seeds for either green beans or sunflowers.
Plant kits are free to anyone of any age while supplies last. We will also be offering a fabulous prize to whoever grows the most magnificent plant, so be sure to share a picture with us when your plant is flourishing!
Drop into the library all week and search for pictures of Easter eggs to win a treat!
For our science friday this week, enjoy a fun recipe for a playdough using Easter Peeps! The whole family can create together!
Valentine’s Day is coming soon! Although we are open to the public again (Yippee!), we are not doing in-person programs yet. So, we will be putting together packets of fun for pre-readers and readers. Each packet will have coloring pages, worksheets, a craft, a recipe to try at home and some candy! You can pick them up in the lobby of the library starting at noon on Friday, February 12th. They will be there until we run out.
This week’s science project is a fun mix of craft and science. This project from Scholastic has kids gluing pasta or glue shapes in a recurring pattern, a chance to learn about geometry and make something beautiful.
Today’s experiment is pretty easy to do. All you need is milk, dish soap and food coloring. Follow these instructions. Even younger kids can do this one with a little supervision. Just remember not to drink the milk afterwards!
Here’s a fun experiment for grade school and older kids!
All you need is an orange or clementine and some baking soda. Remember to limit the amount of baking soda you use. Younger children will need help cutting/separating the orange.
Twix was the scrappy six seed that would not be denied. Its path to victory included beating number three Skittles, number two Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and number one Snickers!
Thanks to everyone who participated. Enjoy all your candy this year. Happy Halloween!
Come to the library on Friday, October 30 or Saturday, October 31 to get your party in a bag! We’re sad that we won’t be able to offer our usual party, but instead, you can bring the fun home. Packets will include coloring pages, activity sheets, a recipe, a craft, a prize or two and a bag of candy! Choose pre-reader, reader or teen/tween.
