Tomorrow, October 6, is the first annual Star Wars Reading Day where publishers, booksellers and libraries are coming together to promote literacy. To celebrate, our local public library has a few activities throughout the week scheduled for the kids. Check your local library to see what is going on in your area.
Today, Emily and I went to the library to watch a LEGO Star Wars short film. It was really cute!
After the movie, the kids were able to pick up bookmarks, a Star Wars pin, and even make some character masks out of paper and wooden tongue depressors. We took our masks home to cut out and added some lamination for durability. Emily and Rob are huge Star Wars fans, so I have a feeling these will get some good use.
She also picked up a coloring page and ended up spending a good part of the afternoon working on it. Normally, she prefers to do her own art rather than such a detailed pre-drawn coloring page, but she was really engaged with this one and she did an incredible job!
Happy Star Wars Reading Day! Go read a book!
