Potomac Branch Library hosts slime-filled afternoon
Local children get their hands dirty at library
Local kids gathered at Potomac Branch Library on Saturday to learn fun facts about wildlife at the Awesome Animal GrossOut event. Children’s Supervisor Sarah Anderson and Children’s Associate Laura Johnson taught the six children and their parents about animal bowel movements and creepy-crawly insects, while encouraging them to check out books on the topics. After collecting imitation rabbit feces and mimicking cockroach movements, the group made their own slime.
