Today went great! The kids came and just started colouring Australian animals to put on headbands straight away. Some of them didn't even take their bags off - just sat there with bags and hats on, happily colouring!
After some colouring we sat together and read the story. The kids and parents enjoyed it. Almost all the kids and parents came to sit then went back to their art afterwards.
The kids are very excited about the book idea and particularly about taking books home! I think it's going to be a very cute outcome!
Some parents just sat on the side, other parents coloured with kids and others stood around engaging at times and taking photos.
