“No Bake Food Fiesta” little ones event

April is One Book 4 Colorado month, in which every 4-year-old in the state of Colorado receives a free picture book! This year’s giveaway title is Mouse Mess by Linnea Riley, and to celebrate, we made a mess of our own! We ¬†held this event twice: once at the library and once at an outreach event in Severance.

I laid a spread of food out for the kids to choose from and encouraged them to combine foods. I gave them plastic cutlery so they could practice their fine motor skills. Whip cream and cookie sandwiches were, by far, the favorite meal both days.

“Shredded Paper Messy Fun!” little ones event

April is One Book 4 Colorado month, in which every 4-year-old in the state of Colorado receives a free picture book! This year’s giveaway title is Mouse Mess by Linnea Riley, and to celebrate, we made a mess of our own!

I saved about 2 months of shredded paper and dumped them into our¬†meeting room. I put them on top of the storytime rugs so that the wood floors wouldn’t be too slippery. Of course, it went everywhere anyway. And for those of you wondering, yes, I am the one who cleans this up.


Some kiddos thought that watching from the sidelines was a safer bet.

I love when the moms get into it.

And of course, I was “forced” to play.
