Fort Night Storytime
Khandallah children recently enjoyed a special Thursday evening "Fort Night" storytime with storytelling held in a cosy library fort built by the children and parents. We began by reading âThe Fort that Jack Builtâ to get some fort-building ideas, and then we turned the childrenâs section into one gigantic pillow fort. We had a competition to see who could design the best flag for our new kingdom, and who could come up with the best name for the fort. We finished up with a couple more stories. Thank you so much to everyone who attended. We hope to see you all at our next event (keep an eye on the kids blog and event calendar for future sessions).
