Yoga Mats and Downward Dogs

We had a new experience today at storytime. The theme was yoga and it was exciting to see the littles come in toting their very own yoga mats. We supplied some mats for those who did not bring their own. My friend Sandra was generous enough to come in and lead our class.

I read a couple of books after we tried some stretches and then Sandra went through some poses with the children.

The class concluded with teddies on tummies so the children could watch their own breathing .

I helped the children make Calming Bottles with glitter glue and water. The caps were then hot glued onto the bottles.

Everyone chose from a variety of yoga books and DVD's  to take home. It was really enjoyable to share this experience at the library with children. The parents seemed to appreciate the calm as well

Snow Business Camp-in

Last night we set up camp at the library. Teen Tuesday activities included: pitching a tent, building a campfire, making snow, and putting together some yummy s'mores on a stick. The teens were having so much fun they just stayed for our family camp-in program!

The Snow in Seconds that I purchased on amazon was a huge hit that will be making another appearance this Friday for our Footloose Friday program. It is a powder that grows instantly into fluffy, cold, white snow. The powder expands 100x!!!

There were stories around the campfire........

while munching on S'more pops.

 Don't forget to catch some fish!


The teens had a great time and really enjoyed interacting with the families. Well done teens!
