Halloween Story Hour

CeCe Murphy dumps a bunch of bat eyes (raisins) into the witches brew the kids created at the Exeter Halloween Story Hour.

The preschool kids enjoyed listening to Halloween stories at the Story Hour.

There were scarecrows, clone troopers and princesses at the Exeter Public Library Story Hour on Friday morning. The preschool crowd, with a few elementary students sprinkled in, enjoyed their own time Friday while the K-3 grade were invited to a Saturday morning story hour.

The kids enjoyed Halloween story books, read by Cowgirl Librarian Nina Bartu. Next, were several fun relay games including a race for candy (which the kids got to keep) and a pumpkin over under relay.

Next was a halloween visor craft. The preschoolers enjoyed cutting out their own sunvisors and then decorating them with stickers. Before reading more stories the participants helped Cowgirl Nina mix up some witches brew with skin (popcorn), bats eyes (raisins), witches eyes (chocolate chips) and other exciting Halloween items.
