Bilingual storytime on the road

This fall, I took bilingual storytime on the road! In order to reach a new and bigger audience, I offered programs at a local church and at our private Catholic elementary school, both in the evening. Not knowing anything about numbers or ages of who my audience would be, I mostly used my normal bilingual storytime outline, with some additions to tweak it for different ages.

Since these were special outreach programs, I wanted there to be a component for socializing and treats afterwards, so I added a craft. I brought a bunch of scissors and tissue paper, and we made papel picado!
