Activity: Green Collage
I pulled any green items I could from our craft supplies and let the kids just have fun gluing them to sheets of green paper. They seemed to have a great time, even if it was a bit messy!
Thoughts: This storytime took place on St. Patrick’s Day, so it worked really well to go with a “green” theme for the program.
