This year we decided to kick our decor off with special cameo appearances of famous people.
As per usual, Natasia slayed our decor.

Natasia also came up with our coloring activity. It was both simple <em>and </em>popular:

Our back wall’s whiteboard became an impromptu art gallery featuring our patrons’ (mostly) self portraits:

I absolutely love it when we get to show off artwork. I mean, I remember how very proud I was to have my artwork hung up in classrooms – and this is a <em>public library</em>. So in my mind that’s a bajillion times cooler.
If you look closely at the above picture, you can spot one of the scavenger hunt pieces. It’s Jane Goodall!
I jumped in to make our scavenger hunt tie-in with Natasia’s great work:

Thankfully some parents <em>did </em>take advantage of all the potential educational aspects of this particular hunt. I mean, there are colors, shapes, and basic descriptions of these remarkable people.
And that’s our month of Cameo Appearances! As always, feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or anything else. You can write a comment on my blog or email me at [email protected]
