Wednesday Wonder

RECIPE FOR A PERFECT LIBRARY DAY


Begin with one library with a wonderfully fun kiddo section.


Add an adorable pinch of Grandma and a competitive checkers game!


Stir in the color and fun of a festive tree. Our library has their tree decorated for each season. For summer right now it has different photos of historical moments (think July 4th, astronaut), neat artwork, pop icons (Elvis), and fun comic book words like "zap" and "ka-pow".



Add the main ingredient - a great pile of new books to read and a pretty book bag to carry them all.



Add the spice of making a new friend. This little gal asked to sit with us at our table so she could work on the art project of the month the library provides.



Add the zest of some fun puzzles!


Finish with a dash of gratitude for another fun library visit and a full book bag. (and maybe go out for a little ice cream)

  2. What a fun library!! Our library has like 4 classes on Monday for the younger kids, and once a week for the teenagers. I especially love our library, since it's right across the street!! You and Annie might want to check out the site bedtimemath.org, and click on the Fun Nightly Math tab. It has interesting math problems to do, Benji and I visit the site since our library does the Crazy 8's Math.

  4. I just love those giant checkers! I still have my sons' game like that one. Hopefully someday I will have grandchildren.
    I am making progress in my kitchen.

  7. We have a great library with an outstanding children's program. Plus, we live in a pretty small town so all the librarians know us & are happy to lend an extra hand with my crew... Needless to say we frequent our library often too! Though I have yet to treat the boys to ice cream afterwards... :)
    I love the checkers and the Christmas tree!

    1. I love to see our library still a busy bustling place too Laura! We have lots of neat children's programs as well and it seems the kiddo section is always busy. Some do play on the computers there, but for the most part very little electronics going on and it makes me happy!!
      Yay for small towns and getting that helping hand with your boys. ;)
