Fairies and Dragonfly Program

Page history last edited by Jane McManus 2 years, 6 months ago

Libraries are more than books. Some kids need a little direction to get the creative juices flowing. Please add YOUR comments. Your colleagues would appreciate hearing what works, and what didn't!

PUBYAC 12-1-2009: Fairy Houses are made every summer and it's a big hit with no cost involved and little staff time. We ask families to bring plenty of natural, found materials such as pine cones, shells, sticks, dried flowers (from their yard only) and a piece of bark for a base. We provide tables covered with newspaper and lots of glue guns for the adults to use.
