Dig Into Reading kick-off event


Dig Into Reading kick-off event

Scott Bahlmann


Yesterday we had our summer reading kick-off, and these are all the activities we had for it!

Dino Feet:


(Some life size dino prints cut out of cardboard led the way to the sign-up table. One little boy liked following the 'monster feed' back and forth.)

Pirate Plunder:


(We typically give each child that signs up a book to keep, and this year they could also choose a prize from the 'treasure chest' which was filled with leftover prizes from past years. )

Ant Tunnel:


(We had security gates delivered a few months ago, and the boxes worked just fine for our Ant Tunnel.)




(This was maybe my favorite thing. I suspended our parachute from the ceiling, and hid ballons inside as 'lava'. It was a fun play space.)


Pin the Pail:


(A variation of pin the tail on the donkey, using a digger! With caution tape as the blindfold.)

Dino Puzzles:


(Simple but fun, dino skeletons cut from cardboard for the young archaeologists to assemble.)

Flower Memory:


(A memory game with flowers on our flannel board.)

Fossil Rubbings:


(I created templates by tracing images in elmers glue on transparencies which had been cut into fourths. This was the most impressing thing for the parents.)


Wiggle Worms: (from Prekinders)


(The clothespins were bird 'beaks' and they got to pick up the pipe cleaner worms, then take them back to the matching color of bowls.)

And that was our Summer Reading Kick-off! About 150 kids throughout the day.
