Lion and Mouse puppet play
How it Went: I had a smaller group today which was great for all the activities. The kids helped put up the felts during the gingerbread man felt story and took turns nicely! The Rapunzel storybox was definitely the favourite. The only hard part was all the kids really wanted to play with the figurines during the story. At the end of storytime, I let them play with the storybox and the puppets from the puppet play.

How it Went: I had another big group this week. All the books worked really well. We took turns tapping the magic tree and I had lots of parent help for the leaf rubbings!
We had a super special guest this week, Patricia Tribe from Storytime in Space . She brought in a video of Astronaut Mike Hopkins reading Max goes to the Moon from space. She also answered all of our space questions and did a really cool activity with us that showed us how the moon stays in orbit around the earth with gravity. Thanks Patricia!
