Tickling funnybones at Spalding’s spooky story time

Have your say

Around 30 children attended a Halloween special, a spooky story-time session, at Spalding Library yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon.

The Alan Ahlberg classic Funnybones, which focuses on a family of skeletons, was read aloud to the youngsters and then it was time for a craft session and picture hunt.

Youngsters attending ranged from pre-school up to the age of eight and they all enjoyed making skeletons – using chalk on paper to draw a face and then attaching drinking straws for the body – as well as hunting out ghoulish creatures, witches and ogres around the library.

Library team leader Sharman Morris said Spalding Library hosts a story time session every Tuesday at 2pm, which is normally attended by pre-school children, but this week’s event was much busier because older children had the chance to join in as they were enjoying a break from school at half-term.

At 2.30pm on Friday Spalding Library is preparing to welcome more children and their teddy bears for a teddy bears’ picnic and more special events are lined up for pre-Christmas. Photo (TIM WILSON): SG271015-112TW
