Lots of Blots at Sunnyside


It was a messy morning at Sunnyside Library today! Paint, ink, much fun! Everyone was busy creating cards, cartoons or drawings with bingo daubers, stamps, pool noodles and other creative inventions. We ended the morning by making an Eureka banner to celebrate the Summer Reading Club. Paint was flying everywhere as we turned into Jackson Pollack with a little splatter painting.
