This week the Star library summer reading program stormed the Star Garden eager to paint the all of the flowers and vegetables in the beds. Anne started the day with a garden tour and the kids helped pick some flower arrangements for the tables. I counted over 80 people including parents with over 30 kids painting.Most painted on paper, but on imaginative young lad created this diptych of cucumber and plastic plate. Genius, I think. Total outside the box thinking. That's what you get with these kids that read instead of zoning out in front of the idiot box all day. OK, I can't back that up but I will tell you this: The town of Star is lucky to have a librarian as dedicated as Ms. Claudia McIntosh. She and Anne put together a great activity for these kids free of charge.
It was hot, but the kids had a great time. Thanks to Anne and Ms. Claudia for providing enriching opportunities for our community's kids.
