Summer Reading Club party wrap up

Friday, February 3, 2012 - 12:06

On Monday at the Mill Park Summer Reading Club party a fantastic time was had by all the children - doing the limbo, finding the bugs in the library, smashing a spider pinata and getting their faces painted or arms tattooed. The Wildlife Exposures Show (creepy crawly expo) was terrific and the kids really enjoyed their encounters with the poisonous centipede, scary scorpion and hairy spiders! It was two hours of fun and bedlam.

How to make a bug diorama

First you need a stash of boxes, yes, that is where all the lids to the photocopy paper boxes went. Add some coloured paper, googly eyes, glitter and a little advice from the bug ladies.

Combine those elements with enthusiasm and a lot of creativity and see what wonders you can come up with!

All Webbed up

Summer Reading Club is almost over for another year and our woollen web is finished. As I admire all the wonderful contributions our club members made, I shall sit back and ponder what GIANT and unruly things can be made to take over Mill Park Library next school holidays. Anyone for a life sized dragon? A Rocket Ship? An all encompassing circus tent?
