We Made…


Car puppets! I cut out (and drew… can you tell?) the car shapes and had the kids assembled them with the popsicle sticks. They decorated the cars and the sticks with little people. It’s always fun to ask the kids who they drew driving the cars. I got a lot of “Daddys” and a “Batman.” Fun car!

It went…

How can a storytime about cars and buses go anything other than great? My highlight moment was standing up to sing, “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes,” which is a staple for me. I asked, “Who can guess what we’re going to sing?!” and one of my regulars shouted, “THE HOKEY POKEY!” Well… who can resist that kind of enthusiasm? We sang it, of course, and you’ve never seen a kid so happy in storytime. I call that a storytime success.
