Come one and all to the opening of our
Public Kitchen Library.
Welcome to our public kitchen Library.
Our motto: For the love of books.
cool stamp pad
homemade library cards
food near, in case of hunger
What we did:
We taped small white pieces of paper to the front of the books
We used some make shift stamps and a stamp pad. One stamp to check out the book /one stamp for when it was checked back in.
The girls favorite part of course was all that stamping and feeling so official.
They also liked typing in the Library card # . :)
bonus: Simple set up and quick tear down:
We grabbed 3 boxes
Took us 20 minutes to put together and 10 or less to take down. :)
Here in Turkey there are few Libraries and the ones that are here are not necessarily public libraries. Lets just say there is no fun childs section. I miss Libraries in the States and am amazed at what a wealth of resource a Library can be and how it is full of exciting books and gives an awe and wonder for reading to young and old.
Every time we go back to the States we load up our suitcases with 2nd hand books kids books.
Truth is we really do have our own small library with the amount of books we cart here from the States.
We made our own Pretend Library and had a blast. I was the librarian for a few minutes too. Yes, I too liked the stamping check out part. ;)
Ps. we did this on a hot August day thus the missing shirt from my daughter. :)
Pss. If you enjoy pretend play you might also really enjoy: our Home Theater post. :)
