Sundance Times - Continuing the Crook County News Since 1884

Library busy with activities


November 28, 2019

The Crook County Library has been abuzz with children’s activities. Play to Learn stations were set up throughout the library on November 13 for families with preschoolers and toddlers to do at their own pace.

This is a program started last school year, allowing a break from regular storytime but still having an activity for families to attend on Wednesday mornings. Stations have included play dough, dramatic play, puppets, bean bins, building blocks and counting and sorting mats. The library has Play to Learn stations three times during the school year, each based around a different theme.

Thanksgiving Storytime November 20 was a hit with the little ones making their own pumpkin “pies” or, as one of the grandmothers stated, “It’s a pumpkin parfait!” The children always have a lot of fun when there is cooking involved.

Our November Maker Friday on November 22 was very well attended. We always have a challenge project before the kids get to free build.

This time it was two different kinds of slime and who doesn’t like slime! Afterwards they made pumpkin parfaits for their snack and then free build.

The kids are always very creative. The library goes through a lot of supplies on our Maker Fridays.

If you are interested in donating supplies please contact Bonnie at the library for suggestions, [email protected] or 283-1008. Storytimes in December on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m.: polar animals, bedtime/nocturnal animals (dress in pajamas and bring a stuffed animal in pajamas too), Christmas. The next Maker Friday is Dec. 20, 1-4 p.m. for K-6th graders.
