Story Time and Crafts, Summer 2024

Episode Three (Wednesday, June 19, 2024)


Miss Dee hosted another Story Time and Crafts session with a group of 40 kids and parents in attendance on June 19th. She read “We Don’t Eat Our Classmates” by Ryan T. Higgins, “Ten Pigs: an Epic Bath Adventure” by Derek Anderson, “Nobody’s Duck” by Mary Sullivan, “My Toothbrush is Missing,” by Jan Thomas, “Let’s Go on a Hike!” by Katrina Liu, and “Ribbit!” by Rodrigo Folgueira. The preschool group designed and crafted their own “Bitty Bugs” using plastic Easter eggs. Our elementary grade group made “Bottle Bugs” out of recycled Mt. Dew bottles. Between the awesome storytelling and creative craft projects, it was pretty clear everyone had a great time at the end of each session!

Episode Two (Wednesday, June 12, 2024)


Miss Dee took our summer story squad on another adventure through Story Time and Crafts on Wednesday, June 12th. She read “A Couch for Llama” by Leah Gilbert, “Mom, the School Flooded,” by Ken Rivard and “The Bug Girl (A true story)” by Sophia Spencer and Margaret McNamara. The preschool group made their own Glimmer Discs to decorate their rooms with. Our elementary grade group made light up constellation jars. Everyone was super excited to hear Miss Dee’s story’s and show off their projects. We can’t wait to see all our friends again next week! We were pretty busy on the library side during this time also and didn’t get to catch as many pictures as we’d have liked this time. If any of the adults who were there have pictures they want to share, either of the story telling, craft time, or just of a finished product, we’d love to see them. Email them to librarian@senecafreelibrary.org, and we’ll get them posted! (Please note which day the pictures are from so we can post them to the right gallery! Thanks!)

Episode One (Wednesday, June 5, 2024)


Miss Dee opened up our Story Time and Crafts season with a group of 50 kids and parents in attendance on June 5th. She read “Silly Tilly” by Eileen Spinelli, “Frank and Bert” by Chris Naylor-Ballesteros, and “a bear, a fish, and a fishy wish” by Daniel Bernstrom. The preschool group made their own binoculars to go out and explore with. Our elementary grade group made dream catchers. Everyone was super excited for their first story time of the season and we look forward to seeing all our friends again next week!
