Children who attended the program made picture frames out of cardboard! After tracing their hands each child chose a saying of their choice: "These hands plant trees!", "These hands recycle!", "These hands don't litter!", or "These hands protect our earth!"  They had A LOT of fun with our Earth Ball and left the library with an arm full of earth-friendly craft ideas and books.
