We offered this on Monday evening and again on Tuesday morning! One prep and set-up for two huge program days! And, only one clean up on Tuesday after the program was done! Horray!
The costs were incredibly low and families wanted to stay at the library playing with all the activity stations for about 90 minutes, significantly longer than many parents/kids usually have the patience for with a room filled with excited people! That alone was a great sign!
Participants could "learn how to use the force to wield lightsabers, discover their Star Wars name, design their own ship, shoot down Storm Troopers, assist in a mission to destroy the Death Star and build their own droid."
Emily generously shared details at her Sowing Seeds Librarian blog, where you can get ideas you can use:
- learn what was offered and see photos of all 8 activity stations
- see what each of the materials cost
If you're planning events for Star Wars Reads Day or want ideas for space-themed events for 2019 Summer Library Program activities, reading Emily's post is worth your time.
