Water Week at the Library!

Today we talked about water at the library.
We shared stories with the kids about people and things that you do in and around water.  Some of the stories we share this week were:
Ladybug Girl at the Beach by David Soman and Jacky Davis
A Cool Drink of Water by Barbara Kerley
A fish out of water

Craft for this week we made water rings.  You take a large craft button, 1 piece of pipe cleaner and cut a small piece of sponge.  You thread the pipe cleaner through the button and twist it around your finger like a ring, take the piece of sponge and place it over the twist then twist the pipe cleaner around to hold the sponge.  Then you take and fold the pipe cleaner down to the sides and  and cut of the ends ( you don't want the sharp ends to poke anyone).  You may place a jewel type decoration on the top with glue if desired. Then you can wet the sponge, shake hands with someone and get there hand all wet.  Kids love them, even boys!
