Taking the time to eat breakfast is vital for a healthy life. In honor of this fact, we celebrated breakfast last week as part of our Reading Is So Delicious summer reading program.
Our Family Storytime theme was Breakfast Before Bed. Families settled in and quieted down (pictured at right), then Miss Sharon read If You Give a Dog a Donut and Jam and Honey. After going through a cereal bar and mixing up some crazy combinations, everyone strung colorful cereal necklaces. If any cereal was eaten in the process of making of these necklaces, our lips are sealed.
The kindergarten through fifth graders at Breakfast for Dinner proved that their love for breakfast stretches on long past morning. After stories about pancakes and pajama-wearing superheroes, participants showed off their speed in a breakfast plate-making relay and their brains in a food word scramble (pictured left). By then they’d worked up an appetite, so they replenished their energy by sharing a delicious breakfast for dinner.
At Breakfast Through the Day, for students sixth grade and up, participants made colorful cereal-box notepads, pictured at right. (The rulers and clips are only temporary to help the binding dry correctly.) They also laughed like crazy during Pictionary and stumped each other during a Celebrity-esque guessing game about cereal mascots.
This week we are heating up our creative sides with art-themed programs and a special campfire event for kids sixth grade and up featuring a professional storyteller and s’mores!
