Fun with painting
The spring session of Family Story Time finished recently at Margaret Reaney Memorial Library in St. Johnsville with some painting. The class
included several finger plays and the Peter Spier story, “Oh, Were They Ever Happy!” The story tells the tale of the fun that ensues when the three Noonan children are left alone one Saturday morning while their parents ran errands.
Deciding to “help” and surprise their parents, the kids got out ladders, brushes and gallons of
assorted-colored paints and painted the house from chimney to basement.
After the story, the children created
paintings with sponges.
