Storytime Prop Making - NEFLIN (10/23/19)

Participants will have an opportunity to create their own props (flannel, hands on, etc.) for storytime and come up with new ideas.

This workshop is geared for youth services staff who present storytimes for young children. Participants will need to email the instructor one song (with words, possibly video if available) and one story. The instructor will pick examples from the submitted ideas for the whole class to make.

Material will be provided, but please
bring a pair of GOOD scissors.

Highlights of the program include:

  • Websites with ideas/printables/clip art and other images
  • Working with various materials: felt, cardstock, contact paper
  • Lamination
  • Interactive storytime props
  • Big props for big groups
