Activity Time

Thirteen children came to activity time today!  They talked about Superheroes and worked on inventing their own. The kids followed clues through the library using their visual and thinking powers.  They also used their powers of touch and perception to guess what was in the mystery bag!

Logan Mueller and Dillon Moser brought their robot  friend ZeeBo to story time.  ZeeBo read Thomas and the School Trip, Logan read The Big Fire Engine, and Dillon read Hooray for Our Heroes. The 18 children then drew a picture of a hero and were given a super hero lollipop.boys 10 Story 10
