Spring Break Bird Brains
Hoover City Schools will be on Spring Break next week. If you and your family decide to have a stay-cation, make sure that Hoover Public Library is part of it! We have an amazing line-up of bird-brained programs for both kids and teens. The overall theme is Birds of a Feather Read Together. Here's a breakdown of each event.
The Pigeon Wants an Audience! on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 10:30 a.m.
This party takes place throughout the Kid Zone. The Pigeon will start with a hilarious skit that (unknown to him) will keep being interrupted by other Mo Willems's characters -- the Duckling, Elephant & Piggie, Edwina the Dinosaur, and Big Frog . There will be two games, Puppy Training and Hot Dog Dress Up, and a paper plate pigeon craft. All kids will receive a bus driver number, cookies without nuts, and Piggie Punch.
Chicken Little on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 10:30 a.m.
This play takes place in The Library Theatre. The Storyteller is interrupted by Foxy Loxy, who takes over telling the story about a "dumb chicken". Get ready for feathers to fly! Chicken Little, Cocky Locky, Ducky Lucky, Goosey Loosey, Turkey Lurkey, Foxy Loxy, and the Storyteller are all played by Kid Zone staff members. See if you can spot your favorite librarian on stage.
Tweety and His Peeps on Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 10:30 a.m.
This party takes place throughout the Kid Zone. Both Tweety and a Peep will share the stage for an opening skit, then the sugary sweetness really kicks in. There will be two crafts -- Peep Houses (graham cracker construction) and a Hatching Chick. There will also be four games -- Save Tweety, Peep Walk, Peek-a-Peep, and I Spy Tweety & Friends.
Peep Art on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 4:00 p.m.
Students in grades 7-12 will use marshmallow Peeps to build dioramas. Maybe you'll recreate a scene from your favorite book or movie.
Peep Science on Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 4:00 p.m.
Conduct a Peeps experiment, dissolving the marshmallow treats in a variety of liquids. Make candy Peep sushi to reward yourself for a job well done.
