Last week we started our After School Adventures program which will run on
Wednesday afternoons for a six- week session. The program is geared towards
Kindergartners through 2nd graders and we generally do about 25 minutes of stories and
20 minutes of a craft, activity, or game.

I don't have a catchy theme title for this week, but we read books where characters




                                wore different clothing or costumes. Here are the books
we read:

I am Invited to a Party! by Mo Willems
Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems
Ribbit: Flip and See Who Froggy Can Be by Bender & Bender

For our activity, we made flip books. This is a really easy and really fun craft!




There are many                                   ways you can do this, but I found a
template outline of a person (such as this one from the Lewis and Clark Library) and ran
copies off on card stock. You can do this on normal paper if need be, but regular copier
paper is kind of flimsy and I've found that card stock works much better.

I ran off three templates for each child and provided them with crayons so they could
design different outfits for each picture.                                Then we stapled
the pictures together, adding a piece of construction paper in the front and back for
"covers". Lastly, cut the card stock papers horizontally (but completely) at the neck and
the waist so that kids can flip the pages and mix and match different combinations.

The kids enjoyed it. It's easy and cheap. And it's a good craft for a range of ages. We'll be
doing something similar for preschool storytime next week. PLUS, by creating their own
books, kids are increasing their print awareness, which is one of the six early literacy
skills.
