Story Time | A Halloween Scare in Indiana by Eric James

I fell in love with this mummy craft on Pinterest. I pre-ripped the pieces of masking tape and stuck them to wax paper for the kids to easily pull off. They did a really good job with this craft. My friend’s niece put all the masking tape at the top of her mummy, and asked for more tape because his “legs were going to get cold.” Too cute.

And this! My lord, can I come to storytime? :)

Yes!!

Sweet! Now, to plot…

Second Friday of each month at 10a and 1p, and the following Thursday at 10a!

Today’s agenda:
1. Drink coffee.
2. Watch Twin Peaks on Netflix.
3. Procrastinate doing that one last piece of homework that’s due at 11:59 tonight.

So the CSLP materials arrived today, and the theme is “Every Hero Has a Story”, focusing on superheroes and local heroes like police officers, fire fighters, and EMT’s. There is a set of rubber ducks dressed like police officers. One of them is in a SWAT vest, helmet, and eye…

I like the teen stuff, though, so I’m happy. Haha. We collectively decided that we’re not buying anything with the Platypus Police Force on it.

I was upset/jealous that I haven’t gotten any CSLP stuff yet (we probably have and no one’s given it to me thanks guys), until I read about the platypus.

Surely they could find someone to do better artwork?

Yesss!  I’m doing this mummy craft in a week and a half at our Monster Mash program!  Glad to hear what worked well for you - wax paper it is!

I tried parchment paper, and that didn’t work at all. It was 9 o’clock the night before and I was freaking out about how I was gonna distribute 12 pieces of tape to each of the 17 preschoolers. Super glad I thought of wax paper. It worked perfectly.

Story Time | How to Treat a Book by Amanda StJohn

A mother left a message for me at the library asking if I could do a story time to teach the kids how to treat their books. I used images from the books to make flash cards and asked the kids at the end of the story which card was the correct way to care for a book (i.e. read in the bathtub or leave your books in a safe, dry place). 

I used images from the book for the craft, and typed care instructions on each image. The kids assembled their own “Caring for Books” coloring book. That way they could take it home and read with their parents. 

I tried not to copy everything exactly, because copyright, but it’s for educational purposes, so.

How to Treat a Book Craft: coverstock, twine, crayons, adhesive, contact paper and popsicle sticks (for flash cards).
