Our "staging area" (formerly the Storytime Room) was the Bunnycakes Cafe'.
There was Bunnycakes Bowling,
and a table for puppet making,too.
Children looked for Bunny Money and turned it in for a prize (leftover from SLP). Big hit-------nothing like something you can buy with pretend money! I am taking some along when I go shopping since Nordstroms is very customer friendly : -)
Sooooooooooooo.......we now advertise to register ahead of time and pick up a very special ticket for the event. It is a public library and we are doing the program right in the middle of the Children's Room, so we are not turning anyone away from participating, but it has cut down on overcrowding.
It makes the program seem special and families feel more of a commitment.
I am positive the Fire Marshall would be pleased.
