On the day of our event, we set up the blocks & boxes with the Angry Bird dodge balls on one side of the room. On the other side of the room, we set up the following three tables:
1. green balloon table where students blew up the balloons and drew pig faces on them.
2. the pom pom table where students created red, black and green pom pom angry birds using yarn, googly eyes and a hot glue gun.
3. paper cup table with rubber bands & Popsicle sticks to create sling shots. Students flung their pom pom birds at paper cup structures.
The kids had fun! As I helped them create the pom pom birds, a student said to me, "You know we're readers, not crafters." The best part was the students did not want to leave at the end of our time. (Yea!) The Live Angry Birds event was held the last week of school. We had lots of different events & activities going on around the school, so I was flattered that they wanted to miss out on the other stuff in order to stay & play in the library.
What crafty reading celebrations do you have at your school?
