Phoenix Book Club - April 2013

Mad Science - Bugs

In April our Mad Science Workshop for ages 4-8 investigated creepy crawly (and useful and interesting!) bugs. Sure, no one likes a mosquito bite, but bugs can be fascinating and also helpful! Take a look for bugs outside then see what you can learn about them in a book or online.

For some great bug stories and bug information, try looking in our catalog.

For more bugs online, try these sites:

Egg Decorating Eggstravaganza

Our fourth Saturday program for 8 and up this month was an Egg Decorating Eggstravaganza.  Eggs are a classic symbol of spring, but if you eat them regularly, you can have free crafting all year long.

Mad Science - Slippery Science

In March our Mad Science Workshop for ages 4-8 investigated polymers, better known to our young scientists as "ooze, goop and slime."  This workshop always makes me think of Dr. Seuss's Bartholomew and the Oobleck a terrific oozy story to read before you begin your experiments.

Kittens and Mittens

Storytime for 3's featured Pete the Cat by Eric Litwin. Pete keeps movin' and groovin' and singing his song . . . because it's all good when you can sing and learn colors and subtraction at the same time. Visit Pete's website and you will find more activities to extend your child's storytime.

Fun with Chocolate

The Library’s 4th Saturday program for kids 8 and up in January was chocolate themed!  This cold day hosted a program that was wonderfully messy, loud, and a whole lot of fun. The kids ate three flavors of chocolate fondue (they voted the dark chocolate their favorite), played games with Oreos and Hershey’s kisses, and made handmade truffles to take home to a special person (or their own stomach).
