I got this idea from a STEM post I found on Pinterest, involving cups, straws, and putty.  I failed BIG TIME, so I decided to scrap it and turn it into a Lego Challenge instead. So after we went over rules, I told my kiddos that today they could build anything they wanted, but our... Continue Reading →

This one is kinda like my opposite storytime, which I'll write about later, but talking about size is another easy theme.  And talking about perception is a great way for kiddos to learn about how to more effectively communicate through classification.  So here's what I've used to talk about size. Stories "I'm the Biggest Thing... Continue Reading →

IT'S ALIVE!!  Not sure what inspired this idea to begin with, but this is a program I wanted to do for awhile.  This one can be a little daunting though, since there is the possibility of someone getting injured.  But as long as everyone's following the rules, all of your kiddos will leave with an...

Bad Art Night is such a good program for any library to do.  Not only does it allow kids to unlock their creativity, it cleans out your old craft supplies!!  A lot of people have already blogged about this, so I'm just going to talk really quick about what worked for us, and what I...

The escape room that we made last year was so much fun that I knew that we had to do it again.  But we can't just do the same one, that would be boring and kids would already know most of the answers.  So I knew we had to start from scratch.  That sounds really... Continue Reading →

As you probably know by now, I like to do challenges that we can all test at the end of the hour.  Like when we got to test each other's pinball machines, scavenger hunts, mini golf courses, or slides.  This one was GREAT for sharing too, and a really simple twist off of a the...
