Maida Vale Library had a number of events for children over the Easter holiday break . There was an ongoing egg hunt where the children had to search for eight egg-shaped cut outs hidden in the library (for a chance to win a cuddly Easter bunny).
We also had two craft making events after our under fives’ sessions, making bunny ears and a cracking Easter egg with a fluffy chick inside.
As part of the World War One commemoration we had a Wacky World War One Flying Machine craft event. There were about a dozen children who attended, and they proved to be surprisingly knowledgable despite their young age. There were Red Barons and Sopwith Camels being glued and painted all afternoon.
On 23 April to mark the oft-overlooked St George’s Day we made dragons and St George knights from recycled loo rolls and silver paper. A photographer arrived and we found ourselves gracing the pages of West End Extra (25 april 2014, page 4)!
