I have my paint brushes back out and working on a really great project! Our local county Reading Council is having a Children's Story Walk Festival. They will walk around our downtown area, where story boards will be up all over and people will be reading books to children . They will be given a map that tell what books are where, as they go to each one they will be given a sticker to add to their map. At the end they will put their maps in a box to win prizes. There will be book characters dressed up walking around. Performances , snack, special prize drawings and even a book signing... It sounds like so much fun for the kids. My booth will be on gardening for kids. We are going to decorate with pumpkins, mums, corn stalks and sitting on straw bales to read our many books on gardening to the kids... I finished the first board this evening, hopefully I will start another one tomorrow night... I hope to use these for many more master gardener events, I really think kids need to get involved with gardening, they can learn so much!!!
