Wind and Hats, Hats, Hats!
March 16, 2011
When I hear the March winds blow,
I look up to the sky.
Instead of things like birds and planes,
I wash the hats fly by.
Each one different from the last,
Every color do I see.
Some are big and some are small,
As they fly by me.
Here comes a blue hat flying by
Now a yellow hat in the sky.
Next a red hat on it's way,
Then a gray hat flies away.
Green and Black, orange and white,
Even purple - what a sight!
I like it when there's rain and snow,
But most of all when the March winds blow.
The wind was blowing during a special program for children on Saturday, March 12 and during storytime earlier in the week. The children felt the strong wind blowing in the library as the wind blew hats away, and they learned the history of why hats were created and how they evolved. Yes, our children created and designed with flowers, ribbons and made their own paper and/or felt hats.
What fun it was watching the children as they modeled the hats that they designed. Many happy faces were present during this special time.
