Here’s the Thrive Thursday roundup for December 5, 2013:

Alice in Wonderland

First up is What is Bridget Reading? She’s sharing an Alice in Wonderland program filled with games, crafts and food ideas to take you down the rabbit hole. I love these ideas and you can adapt them to fit any tea party theme, too!


The Show Me Librarian brings Steampunk to the elementary age complete with games, activities, and a cool video clip of books you can use. You must learn how to play airball and airship!


Bryce Don’t Play is sharing a ton of ideas to do with third graders in her outreach program (of course you can adapt this to a variety of ages). I’m loving how awesome her outreach ideas are and will be taking notes. I’ll be using these magic trick ideas soon, though I admit I keep going back to this post to watch Gob dance with his cards. Haha!

Winter Reading Program

Abby the Librarian is a guest blogger at ALSC this week and is sharing her Winter Reading Program. I’d love to see how this works out.

Night at Museum

And I’m sharing a Night at the Museum Book vs. Movie Program. Read the picture book, then play the Bingo Game.

Check out past Thrive Thursday roundups here. To find out how to participate, check out the schedule and Pinterest board. If you have any questions, email me at

    If it’s okay with you, I’ll share my Steampunk program from earlier in the fall. All Aboard the Airship!
