Toddler Drive-In Movie
We spotted the idea on Pinterest and our two early literacy librarians jumped right on it. Between them, they do all our storytimes for kids birth through 3 years old. During storytime breaks they usually cook-up an idea to bring the families back - whether it's a dance party or a stealth program introducing families to different parts of the collection.
This one is definitely a wowza! With some leftover book boxes, paper plates for wheels and paper bowls for headlights, kids and parents worked on making little cars for the kids. Once the cars were made there was time for a short 10 minute children's book movie and then kids took their cars home.
That's it. That simple. And that darn delightful. A mom who came in the next day reported that her son watched Sesame St in his car that morning. This is a program we will definitiely revisit!
