Spring is in the air

The Bibliophile Read-a-force met Friday, March 15 to plan for the upcoming read-a-thon.  We made lists of books to read during the event and came up with some great ideas for a brochure to explain the purpose of the group.  The snack ended up being popcorn, pretzels, Golden Grahams, raisins, and marshmallows (aka leftover snacks from other programs).  It turns out, some of these materials are just perfect for creating mini edible sculptures:

After all of that brainstorming, we decided to head outside to let off some of that creative energy (it was Friday afternoon, after all).  Spring is definitely in the air, and it was fun to get outside for a few minutes.


Are you ready for Spring?  What’s you’re favorite outside activity that you’ve missed all winter?
