Sally Bailey, North Hill’s children’s librarian and Queen of the Yard Sales, has amassed a horde of cute and cuddly stuffed dogs and cats. From the looks of it, cats and dogs are eager to get out of their boxes, take their places in the glassed in display case, and get to work charming everyone who walks by.
At the beginning of the summer, we asked: “If you had a super power, what would it be?”
This is what you wrote:
I want to
- Fill each one I meet with love
- Have self-confidence
- Heal people
- Bring Paul Walker back to life
- Tell people how I feel without words
- Put the kids to sleep with a snap of the fingers
- Be ultra-flexible so I can itch my back
- Understand and speak any language
- Make people feel good about themselves
To have superpowers like
- The Hulk
- Barbie (who knew!)
To be able to
- Turn into a unicorn
- Turn into an adult
- Be an army man
- Become Ant Man, but I’m still a person
- Be in two places at once
- Have a force field
- Shoot webs like Spiderman
- Be invisible
- Read people’s minds
- Have laser vision
- Be super fast and strong
- Have laser vision
- Change into other people’s bodies
Creative Things for Teens and Tweens: Cement Cloth Planters, Part 2
The cement planters had dried! We carefully pulled the cement pots apart from the plastic to reveal what they looked like on their own.
Once they dry for another week or two, our participants can plants flowers directly into their new handmade pots! For now though, they can display flowers in them that are planted in plastic pots. Look how cool they all turned out to be!
Creative Things for Teens and Tweens: Cement Cloth Planters
Last week we mixed Portland cement with Peat moss, Pearlite and water.
Once we got it to a nice, gloppy consistency, we dipped pieces of cloth in it until they were saturated with cement mix. Then we draped the cloth over plastic covered pots.
Then we left the creations to dry for a week… Stay tuned for how they turned out this week!
