Just got this book at the library and it is filled with wonderful ideas that I really want to do yet know I can’t do because PAINT!
But I’m not going to give up. I think I can find some substitutes for the messy paint and perhaps just go with markers. Our meeting room/programming room is carpeted and getting it cleaned on a normal day is difficult so I can’t imagine what would happen if we got paint on it. I’m pretty sure our custodian would never forgive me.
Has anyone done an Art Workshop for kids at their library? I’m thinking this would require registration as it sounds like the kids will need lots of space to move around for some of these.
Posting this here so I can stumble upon it later and maybe plan a program for next year. 🙂
I don’t know what I was thinking when I scheduled these past few months of my life. I bought a house, moved into the house, got married on top of working AND then decided I should do an Angry Birds program, Star Wars Reads Day, and My Little Pony Party on top of all the other things. So, needless to say, I didn’t do as much for these events as I wanted to but the attendees didn’t know that and they had a blast so yay for that!
Today was the My Little Pony Party. I scheduled it for a day our schools had an early dismissal because of a teacher in-service so it wasn’t connected to a holiday or anything, the kids just got out early and needed someplace to go. I made sure to REMIND parents of this anytime they mentioned the program’s 2pm start time.
I advertised the program for ages 5 and up and made sure to mention that it was for both bronies and pegasisters so everyone felt welcome.
It worked! We had a great turn out, around 50 kids, and the age range was a lot of early elementary. They all loved it!
