The first one is called Play With Your Food. Instead of just making a snack, they literally make something out of their food before they eat it. These have always been fun, and Gess has found some interesting treats to make. This month she made a scarecrow, spiders, and a marshmallow animal.
They also started a Lego Club. This was the first time for this event. Each time they will have a different idea to build on. This time was just anything they wanted to put on display. Gess built a T-Rex but only managed to build a small one so she named it baby T-rex.
Gess loves sorting her Legos but has trouble building anything other than a house. We tried a T-Rex once using a pattern and that is why she tried making it this time, but without the instructions she didn't know how to finish it. I am hoping this group will help give her new ideas on how and what to build. I also want her to learn to just try new things.
I am thankful our library has these great activities. I bet your library has some great ideas too. If you don't know what they have to offer, go check them out. You just might be surprised!
