Giving thanks as Springdale Library program starts again
There was a low turnout during the Thanksgiving story time at the Springdale Public Library Saturday, but there was plenty to be thankful for as the program is underway for another season.
Librarian Judy Hamilton gathered the small group together for a story about the first Thanksgiving involving the pilgrims and the Indians. The book taught the participants about that first big turkey feast.
They all then had a chance to share what it is they are thankful for. Hamilton showed them a cornucopia and they had some fun learning to pronounce it.
The young ones were patient and attentive through a story, “Thanksgiving Feast,” before they got the chance to make their own cornucopia craft.
The children filled their cornucopia with fruits and vegetables they cut out of grocery flyers. They added a magnet so it can be displayed on their refrigerators.
Later, it was time for the puppets Casey and Susie to visit. They were dressed as a pilgrim and an Indian, and they entertained with a Thanksgiving song.
After grace was spoken, everyone sat together and enjoyed blueberry pie with whipped cream. Upcoming at the Springdale Public Library is the Family Halloween story time.
