Thrive After Three

Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library

Thrive Thursday Roundup 2/6/14

Thrive Thursday Logo

We have lots of different school age programming choices this month!

Butterfly mask

In Short, I am Busy shares an idea from her ongoing Messy Art Club involving butterflies. With a few simple supplies (die cuts, construction paper, and school supplies) you can recreate her third annual Butterfly Fest. She also found some cool wings to purchase online for about $1 each if you have the money in your budget!

Lego Movie

Bryce Don’t Play is celebrating the Lego Movie premiere at her library. This no-stress-planning event is easy to steal, which is what I’ll be doing next week at my Lego Club!

Chinese New Year

Carol Simon Levin is sharing a Chinese Calligraphy program for K-5th. With a few supplies (white paper, black paint, brushes) and a few books from your collection you can do a successful Chinese Calligraphy and Horoscope program with your kids!

Passive Winter Olympics

Tammy shares a passive program to correlate with the winter Olympics. If you have the room to do this, you should! From crafts and scavenger hunts to card games and word searches, Storytimes and More’s Go For the Gold has it all.

winter reading

Another passive winter program is from Lisa’s Libraryland. Read her tips to make the stats count, too!

What Floats Your Boat

I’m saving this activity to go along with the summer reading theme this year: What Floats Your Boat? In Short, I Am Busy did all the hard work of organizing and hauling water, and then the kids did the rest.

Battle of the Books

If you’re thinking about March programming, check out my Battle of the Books program. You just have to order multiple copies of the books and the program runs itself!

And, if you’re looking for more school aged programs enter the Book Giveaway Contest here.

If you have a program for the after school age crowd that you would like to share, leave a link to your blog in the comments section and a compilation will be posted on the first Thursday of the month.
