What the Dinosaurs Did at the Library – Day 28

The Dinos were back in the storytime room again last night, and it looks like they had fun!! Hope they are ready to get MESSY at Messing Around this morning at 10 am. You can stop in to enjoy activities that are too messy to try at home. Siblings welcome. Birth to 6 years old.

Put on your PJ’s and join us live in the Children’s Program Room for a PJ Party that is right out of your dreams with songs, stories, and fun!  Geared toward children age 3 and up with their families. Our theme this month is Dinosaurs!

Creativity Lab Recap – Potion Painting!

For November’s Creativity Lab, we made our own potion paintings!

We mixed water colors, clear glue, glitter paint (hair gel plus glitter), glitter, salt, and powdered tempera on watercolor paper to create our unique works.

The inspiration for this project came from the book Paint lab for kids : 52 creative adventures in painting and mixed media for budding artists of all ages by Stephanie Corfee. You can place it on hold by clicking the link!

You can also check out this post from Barley and Birch to see another fun process art potion painting method.

Join us next month on December 8 at 6 pm, when we will explore notan and cut-up art in Creativity Lab.
