Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library
After all the amazing passive programs I’ve read about by Bryce Don’t Play and many others, I took a plunge at the beginning of the summer. I removed the children’s game computers and added a passive programming station, or Independent Learning Station. My opening Independent Learning Station activity was stolen from Catch the Possibilities called I Spy with My Jedi Eye. It was extremely successful! The kids loved racing around the library looking for the hidden Star Wars characters. This added program was a huge hit and I decided to add passive programming to my monthly repertoire!
So, I made a Frozen one. I used the Frozen lyrics cards from Sisters Suitcase Blog and tweaked it a bit to solve a secret sentence. I printed instructions to show the children how to play:
Here are the files you can use: Frozen Scavenger Hunt. And by the way…I haven’t heard a single complaint about the children’s game computer in a month!
