Wednesday 5th July

The Porridge & Play Castlemilk pals took the library by storm again this Wednesday.

We had a rollicking adventure featuring a mucky brew, a giant and some very tasty marshmallows!

We danced, dressed up and met, among others, the Funny Camel, the Hungry Hippo, the Happy Crocodile and the Funky Unicorn.

The Magic Ball took us to Spaghetti Land where we had to suck up enough spaghetti to create a path. In amongst the tomatoey strands, Maryam spotted some gummy sweeties – yum!

Then a Bog Creature appeared and invited us to join in their favourite activity – getting mucky!

Slugs and flies, syrup and smashed up strawberries, we were soon as mucky as could be. We poured on some melted chocolate to top it all off!

Mucky me mucky you mucky mucky mucky brew!

Then we danced a dance in a long long line, and to our surprise, whoosh!

A wave came along to wash us clean.

Kevin saw a shark so we pretended to be seaweed, then when it was safe we floated on our backs, relaxing in the waves.

Safe at the shore, Desire lit a fire and we toasted marshmallows with chocolate, sprinkles and fruit.

Then Kevin spotted a Giant who led us in a Catwalk.

Woohoo! What a fun time. See you again soon for more Storyplay summer adventures.
