Christmas Party!

What's more fun than playing "Pin the Nose on Rudolph" or "Christmas Carol Scramble"?  Yesterday our after school kids discovered that it's dressing up one of the volunteers as a Christmas tree!!!!!!!

Thank you, Julia, for your patience and willingness to play along.

Holiday After School Movie and Activity

The awful weather yesterday did not deter many of my after school kids from coming for a movie and activity.  We braved the snow and wind to watch Arthur Christmas, a wonderful but not well-known movie about the magic of Santa.

Next week is our holiday celebration with the classic movie The Santa Clause. 

Grinch Visits!

We were fortunate enough to have a special visitor on Sunday -- the Grinch!!!

Just as I finished reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas, in popped the Grinch himself!  With his heart grown 3 sizes he handed out candy canes and talked to the kids, and we all sang Welcome Christmas together.  The Grinch even gave Tiger Cub Pack 50 a tour of the library!
Next year we'll invite him for some roast beast.

Awesome After School Fun

Yesterday was  "awesome"!  We watched The Lego Movie and then played with Lego's!  So much fun to watch the kids intently make whatever they want.

Next week we'll start our holiday season with Arthur ChristmasJoin Santa's second son on his incredible journey to insure that no child is missed on Christmas day.

Thanksgiving Week

Movie Poster

There is no school next Wednesday, so therefore there can be no after school movie and activity.   
But the kids will be back December 3rd when we will be showing The Lego Movie and then we will be playing with Legos afterward.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and "awesome" Thanksgiving!

After School

I am happy to say that we were able to show Maleficent the day after it came out on DVD, and I loved it.....maybe more than the children!  One of the perks of being a Youth Specialist at a library!
