Crafting Librarians if you want an easy program, try mini books & albums! We did one the other night and had a good turnout, including boys, for a December program. They stayed busy for a solid hour and we had to stop them to clean up and look for their rides. I created two examples, one with photos (an album) and one without (as shown), which is a collection of Six Word Memoirs from my coworkers. I like any opportunity to get the creative juices flowing, even if for 2 minutes!
In the publicity, they were asked to bring photos to put in their books and some did while others made quote books and ode to Twilight books. Everyone had an enjoyable time, including myself and the Teen Librarian!
Supplies per participant:
4 – 3.5×5 pieces of cut cardboard (from cereal, cake mix, soda boxes)
2 – 1″ binder clips
See my other posts, mini books, for more information and examples.
