Play along at home by printing out iron-on badges on your inkjet printer. Then, as you earn badges, iron them onto a t-shirt, sash, tote bag, or whatever cloth apparel you'd like.
Another idea is to print them out onto regular paper and
tack/tape them to a corkboard, refrigerator, etc.
And, artists of any age can print out the Connect Your Summer coloring book. When you finish coloring it, bring your best page to the Reference Desk so we can show it off!

LB went to Chicago for the Memorial Day weekend. Look at the cool sculpture LB is standing by in this picture. It's called Cloud Gate, but most people just call it the Bean. Mmmm. That makes me hungry. Unfortunately, this bean isn't edible. Guess I'll have to check out some books about beans from the library and learn how to grow my own. Have you ever done that? It's pretty easy. And a fun thing to do over the summer… which is almost here! Yay! It's certainly felt like summer the last few days. I can't wait for it to get here.
Until next time!
