22 Easy and Fun Dr. Seuss Crafts for Kids

Another Snowy Story Time

We are ready for spring! Aren’t you? Hopefully this will be the last time we feel inspired to do a story time about snow this season. Listen to our stories and then check out the fun craft kit you can pick up at the library!

Our craft this week is a kit you pick up at the library. Kids will use a pencil eraser to make snowflakes surrounding their snowman. You can make a big pile of snow like Miss Megan did, and then color in your snowman. The snowman coloring page and the pencil are provided in the kit. All you need to provide at home is the paint.

Groundhog Story Time

This week we are celebrating Groundhog Day! First of all, what is a groundhog? Maybe you have never seen one before.

A groundhog, also known as a woodchuck, is a large rodent. It lives in burrows in the ground and hibernates during the winter. You can often see groundhogs that live near the grain elevators in Tekamah! Ask Miss Megan about them; she sees them a lot.

In the United States and Canada, Groundhog Day is celebrated every year on February 2nd. Legend says if the groundhog emerges from his burrow and sees his shadow because it is sunny, winter will last 6 more weeks. If he doesn’t see his shadow because it is cloudy, spring will arrive early.

A famous groundhog named Punxatawny Phil helps with the celebration in the Pennsylvania every year.

We hope you will enjoy our groundhog stories and fun craft!

Polar Bear Story Time

This week our theme is polar bears! They would sure love the cold weather we have been having.

You can make your very own polar bear at home with this fun (but probably a little messy) craft. We know it’s proven fun because we have done a version of it at the library before! Check out the link below.
