Happy Birthday Eric Carle!

This Saturday, March 20th, was the birthday of famous author/illustrator Eric Carle. In his honor, we held a special craft and story time. We learned a little bit about this famous man and then took the opportunity to create your own tissue paper collage art.  The program ran for one hour. We will be posting photos soon. Keep an eye out for future art/author programs!

See you soon!

Yesterday morning at storytime, we made special St. Patrick's Day shamrock wands. Don't miss next week's storytime! We will sing songs, do fingerplays and read stories around the central theme of farms and farmers. The craft will be Old MacDonald's farm, which you can then take home and be able to sing along to with your children. Hope to see you there!
