Things are Poppin' in Story Time!
Week 3 of our Story time Session and we had balloons as the theme. Everybody loves balloons! We started class with a fun game of balloon volleyball. I blew up enough balloons for everyone and tied up a string for the "net" between two posts that we have in our Story Time room. The kids hit or threw the balloon over the string to their partners on the other side.
We read The Blue Balloon by Mick Inkpen, See Pip Point by David Milgrim, and A Bunch of Balloons by Anne Cassidy with our Jr. Story time classes. Then we added Molly Who Flew Away by Valeri Gorbachev and A Balloon for Isabel by Deborah Underwood for our Preschool classes.
For our craft, I copied a picture of a clown holding a bunch of balloons. We used paper tubes to dip into paint and then pressed it onto the paper to make round balloon shapes. We painted the rest of the clown with Q-tips.
