Last month, just in time for Easter and general Spring celebrations, the Northshire Bookstore Children’s Department held a tea party. We invited kids 10 and under to come to the store and make some springtime crafts and enjoy tea and cookies. And, like any good party, we encouraged kids to come in costume.
First Whitney showed us how to make finger puppets from pipe cleaners. We had fun gluing pompoms and googly eyes on our puppets to make them one-of-a-kind. Next, Fran taught us all how to make little candy holders with cupcake paper and flower shapes. Then, the best part, we ate homemade cookies (thanks Fran) and drank tea and juice. After that, everyone sat down quietly and read books, or ate snacks, or went home, after thoroughly ruining dinner.
If you missed our wonderful event, never fear! The department is planning to host a fun kid’s event every month for starting in May. First up: crafting for mom on May 11th. Mother’s Day is coming soon and we’d like to help kids get in the spirit. Craft a gift for mom and listen to a book about how wonderful mothers are. We’re also planning events for Father’s Day and then a scavenger hunt through the store!
All dates and times will be announced soon, but for now, mark your calendars for May 11th at 4pm and come join us for another fun event in the Children's Department!
