Footy colours were celebrated last week at the Tatura Library for Rhyme and Story Time.
The monthly activity provides children and their caregivers with the opportunity to share and experience the joy of reading.
‘‘It gets them excited about books and reading and learning, and singing is a great way to learn and practise language,’’ Goulburn Valley Libraries’ children’s librarian Emma Kennedy said.
Starting off with songs and rhymes, combined with actions and dancing the children are able to express themselves through learning about a particular theme.
‘‘Today we’re doing footy colours day, so we’re reading some football stories and then we’ll do a craft activity supporting that theme,’’ Ms Kennedy said.
The children decorated a paper football in their favourite football colours.
‘‘We’ll get them to decorate them with their football team’s colours or they can do rainbow coloured footballs if they like, it’s all about having a bit of fun and working with their parents and carers,’’ Ms Kennedy said.
