No Fooling!

Today is April Fools’ Day, and to celebrate, Family Storytime was all about tricks.

We read about a very clever and tricky “crocoduck,” we guessed (wrong) again and again, and we heard some silly knock-knock jokes.

Everyone made a pair of fake glasses. Don’t they look silly?

What did the dog say when it sat on sandpaper?

Ruff!

That was just one of the dog jokes from today’s celebration of Every Day’s a Holiday.

Today is National Puppy Day, and we had lots of puppy fun.

We had a puppy trivia contest. Did you know that dogs have 8 blood types? Or that a healthy dog’s temperature is 101.5? Do you know how many teeth a puppy has when it is born? Zero!

We also ate like dogs–no hands.

We ended with a calmer activity: making art.

Thank you to William Wegman for the inspiration.

Don’t Be Irrational: Celebrate Pi Day!

Even though Pi Day (March 14) was yesterday, today we had a Pi Day themed STEAM program. We had a trivia quiz and an art challenge: 3 colors, 14 minutes, 15 squares (3.1415).

 

Some fun trivia about pi:

Did you know that Albert Einstein was born on Pi Day? Or that if you read all the known digits of pi aloud without stopping it would take 133 years?

Here’s a website where you can find your birthday or almost any series of numbers, somewhere in pi. Click here to try it.
