JCL members helping children make a lion puppet

Here Comes the Romans Presented by HJCL

JCL members hosted a mythology themed event at the Aboite Branch Library, Here Come the Romans, November 5, 2011. Plans for the exciting stories and fun crafts brought in eager children.

The day began with the story of Androcles and the Lion. After the story, the children were able to make a lion puppet, representing the lion from the story. They also learned the Latin word for lion, leo.

Stories continued. Following the craft were the stories King Midas and the Golden Touch and Pegasus. Both tales captivated the children with alluring colors and pictures.

When the story was over, the kids transitioned to another craft. The children were able to make their very own bulla, a charm worn by Roman children to ward off evil. They could decorate it however they pleased, and they even added a charm. Before attaching the charm, the kids made a wish on it. They had to be careful though, just as King Midas learned.

Before leaving, the kids received a golden chocolate coin. JCL members had a great time reading mythological stories and helping kids create fun crafts.
