I always worry that my son will not have enough Social Skills, or have learned enough before he attends school so when opportunities come up like Story Time I jump on them! Storytime is an event at one of our libraries once a week that is FREE. Every Wednesday morning from 10:45-11:15ish we sing songs, interact with other kids around my son’s age, and do a little activity.
Today we sang nursery rhymes about colors, thumbs, bears, bees, and many more. After the songs, we read two books about dinosaurs! My son LOVES dinosaurs which made him very involved.
After the two stories about dinosaurs, all the kids were given an ice egg. Inside the ice egg was a dinosaur we had to “hatch”. My son was given a cup of hot water and a paintbrush. He would then use the paintbrush to “paint” hot water on the ice egg until it melted, and the baby dinosaur came out! My son hatched a green stegosaur, which happened to be one of his favorite dinosaurs!
We love to attend story time when we can, it’s always fun to find a kid-friendly activity to do around your home. Check your closest library to see if they have one!
