Chil­dren go mad for hats at tea

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Ali­cia Per­era

Hats were all the rage at the Kar­ratha library last Thurs­day when it took part in Aus­tralia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea.

A Mad Hat­ter party theme had chil­dren and adults alike dressed up in their most weird and won­der­ful hats and the library was dec­o­rated with Alice in Won­der­land props on loan from the St Luke’s Col­lege drama de­part­ment.

The library held a joint event in com­bi­na­tion with Na­tional Si­mul­ta­ne­ous Sto­ry­time and staff de­vel­oped the theme from this year’s cho­sen books, which were all hat-re­lated.

The story time ses­sion was a hit, with the al­most 80 chil­dren who at­tended, and af­ter­wards a full range of morn­ing tea op­tions were on of­fer for a gold coin do­na­tion.

The library also put on a pup­pet show which chal­lenged chil­dren to “guess that hat” through rid­dles, and there were goody bags for ev­ery child.

All funds raised will go to­wards the Can­cer Coun­cil.

The Dampier Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion also held an Aus­tralia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea at the Dampier Com­mu­nity Hall where there were plenty of home-made treats on of­fer.
