Jell-O Painting Infant Explorers!

Leovigilda with Jello Art WorkYesterday we had special guest Leovigilda Genova in our Infant Explores Program.  I had the privilege of showing Leovigilda the ins and outs of Jell-O painting.  We were all slipping and sliding around in abstract full sensory exploration art.  If you have never experienced this particular medium it is highly recommended.  The babies squished it in their fingers and toes.  Afterwards we all cleaned up to play with some infant toys and chase down some bubbles.  Thanks to Leovigilda for participating in our program today and to the happy children of the Katherine Tyra Library community for cutting loose and having fun.

Domino's Pizza Challenge Issued

Katie Bertram showing off her best pizza pie.

Domino’s Pizza was a lot of fun on Tuesday.  Katie Bertram her team members from a Domino’s close by taught us how to make a lump of pizza dough into nicely shaped pizza pie.  We all were dough slinging expert-novices before they left.   I issued a challenge to Domino's team member Katie Bertram to make her best pizza pie in dough form.  We will have to see if she can return next year and beat her own personal pizza.
