Here's an activity that is perfect for indoor time. Kids can create their own pretend Library using this PDF kit. Simply print out the PDF file and let the kids cut and design away. Hang up all the items on a shelf, the wall or even a cardboard box. Hours of entertainment! Plus, kids can get an idea of what it's like to run their own library!
The first step is setting up the library. Kids can come up with a name for their library. Next, they can decide what hours their library will operate, in order for people to know when it is open. Then, the kids can gather up books from around the house and organize them either by topic, author or alphabetical order.
Once the library is open, simply put out the "OPEN" sign. Also included are signs that can go on the shelves to show how the books are arranged. Once library patrons are ready to check out some books, use the pretend computer terminal to keep track of book loans! Also included are pretend library cards to give to patrons.
