toddler time: bears at the beach

Mystery Box: Inside our polka dotted box, we found a beach ball & a GIANT pair of sunglasses (which I wore for a few minutes just to be silly.) 

Books We Read: 
Llama Llama Sand & Sun- Dewdney
Hide and Seek Harry at the Beach- Harrison

Flannel Board:  Bear Goes to the Beach

My friend Bear is going to the beach today! Let’s help her get ready!

What should Bear wear to the beach – a snowsuit OR her swimsuit?

What will Bear need at the beach – her mittens or her sunglasses?

Will Bear want to warm up with hot cocoa at the beach or cool off with a super duper ice cream cone?

What will Bear play with at the beach – her beach ball or her sled?

Looks like Bear is ready for a fun day in the sun!

i based this adorable felt story on one i found HERE.

Craft: Beach Bears

Kids colored a card stock bear, then attached a beach ball & popsicle stick to make a cute summer puppet!

This was a fun summer program! The stories were perfect and everyone loved the flannel story. I absolutely loved the beach bear puppets, they were so bright and colorful. I printed the bears from this awesome site HEREI printed the beach balls on white cardstock using my color printer.

Today was Patron Appreciation Day here so we had cookies for all our patrons. I made a short announcement before the program thanking everyone for coming to our library so it was a really happy day. Two pretty big groups today: about 26 in the early session and 19 in the second one.
