Week 3 9-12: Magic

Week 3
Ages 9-12
Magic 

Book:

We read the first chapter of a book by Roald Dahl called the Magic Finger. It was about a girl who could do magic just by pointing her finger! It went along very well with our magic themed week. 


Craft:

For our craft today we made magic tubes. We were able to be magicians with this craft. Materials needed were tape, construction paper, scissors and ribbon. 



Games: 

For our game today we played the sneaky magician. To play this game choose one child to be the magician. The child who is the magician must place an object close to them (we used a small ball). The magician must sit in the middle and keep their eyes closed. All the other players must act as thieves. The thieves are trying to steal the ball from the magician only one thief at a time may attempt to steal. The magician must sense with their eyes closed if a thief is near. The magician must stay seated as the thieves attempt to steal. The magician can tag people with their hands. If a thief is tagged they then return to their spot. If a thief is successful they become the next sneaky magician. 


Snack: 

For our snack today we had apples, carrots and snack mix (chocolate chips, cheerios, pretzels, and raisins).

Nature 

Books: 

Since our theme was nature I thought it would be a good idea to read some books about people doing research in nature. The first book we read was Shark Lady: The True Story of How Eugenie Clark Become the First Most Fearless Scientist by Jess Keating. This was a great book how you should never make assumptions about something before you know the whole truth.
The second book we read was Compost Stew An A to Z Recipe for the Earth by Mary McKenna Siddals. This was a fun book that gave some ideas on all the things you could put in a compost. 
The final book we read was Me...Jane by Patrick McDonnel. This was another book about reasearch in the animal field. This one was about Jane Goodall, it was a great way to end our nature themed storytime. 

Craft: 

For our craft this week we made birds nests. To make the birds nest we used paper plates (cut in half), paper shavings, googly eyes, feathers, construction paper (to be the birds), and glue. 



Game:

For our game this week we players berries and bears. To play this game there is one person who is a bear, that person stands in the middle. All the other people are berries. The bears are trying to eat the berries. If a berry is tagged by a bear, they then become a bear. The final berry is the winner and they then become the bear that starts the game and the cycle continues. There is a start and finish line that the berries must cross. 

Snack:

For our snack today we had bananas, and carrots.

Dylan the Villain by K.G. Campbell
What a fun book! The kids thought this book was pretty great. We practiced our evil laughs while reading this book. It was a nice change to what you would normally expect to read in a superhero themed storytime. 

Eliot Jones Midnight Superhero by Anne Cottringer
This was another good book. It had lots of different characters and was packed with humor! It went along nicely as a contrasting book to Dylan the Villain.
