On day 7 of our South Korea trip, we went to the underground shopping mall – Starfield COEX Mall to avoid the rain and to visit Starfield Library! This mall is in the Gangnam District of Seoul, South Korea. It was relatively far away from our location in Myeongdong and it took us nearly 40 minutes to travel there. It is located near Samseong station on Seoul Subway Line 2, at the intersection of Teheranno and Yeongdong Dae-ro.
Yet again another fantastic half term event Halloween Costume Making organised by the Lichfield District libraries. Today, we made a bat mask, treat box and a cape for Halloween with Sarah Fry from Sew Cool Creations.
Lichfield library had a range of re-enactments and events on a medieval theme for all the family and meet a knight. Mr K had made himself a Medieval headwear provided free with art and craft materials from the library.
Yet again another fantastic Summer holiday event organised by the Lichfield District libraries. Today we got to meet at least 10 different types of reptiles, mammals, and insects. The handler was there to explain the history behind the wiggly creatures, their unique way of protecting themselves and how to handle them etc. There was a lot of interaction and the kids were allowed to handle the creatures. Mr K was amused by all of them and he held every single reptile/mammal on show including the snail and cockroach. Ms C was not so keen to hold them. She was quite scared actually. At least she was brave enough to take a closer look at them!
Another school holiday activity hosted by Staffordshire Library – Animated Cake Pops Workshop. It was a 2 hour class and cost £2 per child. We made 1 teddy bear topper, 1 teddy bear face and 1 tiger cake pop. Both of the kids had a lot of fun and they wanted to eat the melted chocolate before they even started decorating.
Firstly, we made a teddy bear using marzipan icing. It was quite difficult for Ms C to do and I had to do most of it. Mr K was able to make it with a bit of my help.
(While waiting for instruction)
Today, Mr K went to Lichfield library with his best friends, E and K to make a teddy bear and cookies and join in the bear stories and picnic. The Bear Making workshop cost £2.50 for 1.5 hours and I think it was a great bargain! Look what he got! He has named his bear Zac after his best friend! I would rate this activity 5 stars out of 5. Staffordshire library has offered the best school holiday activities for children! Awesome!
Last Saturday, we signed up to the Staffordshire Libraries annual Summer Reading Challenge which just launched on that day. It was for 4 – 12 year olds who are being encouraged to take part in the initiative and keep the boredom at bay during the school holidays. The challenge is to read six books over the summer break and pick up rewards and incentives along the way.
