Yesterday we kicked off our Story Time + Play & Learn series at the Forest Hills Library. We have the privilege of offering Play & Learn activities immediately following the regularly scheduled Story Time presented by the fabulous Forest Hills Children's Librarian. If you were there yesterday, you know that we had a very large crowd! Little Read Wagon staff was busy non-stop, but with the help of the Forest Hills staff we managed to take a few photos.
Squeezing the glue out of the bottle takes a great deal of strength! Getting the glue to land where you want it requires some concentration. Fortunately, both elements were in abundant supply.
Play dough is very easy to make, and the variations are endless. It appears that there is some intense thinking happening here!
Summer time often means that we experiment with more outdoor activities as space and temperature allow. If you plan to join us, please dress for the weather!
