Does every animal species serve a purpose on Earth? Let's explore some quirky animals and find out. Registration required.

**NOTE: Please register separately for each child planning to attend this program.**

Join Ms. Carrie to learn about one of her favorite things- goofy, quirky and maybe pointless animals.  But are they pointless? Using the book The World's Most Pointless Animals by Philip Bunting, we'll explore some characteristics of a variety of critters and create some animal art.  We'll make a glow-in-the-dark jellyfish and a pointless/wonderful animal memory game. 

  

This program has supplies to be picked up at the KidSpace Youth Reference Desk at the Main Branch, 270 N. Grove Ave, Elgin. Program supplies will be ready for pick up between Monday, Sept.  11th and Sunday, Sept.17th.  All registered participants will receive an email with the Zoom login prior to the program date. If you would like to pick up the supplies at the Main Library Drive-Up Window instead of inside the library at the Youth Desk, please call the youth desk at 847-429-4685 at least one hour before arriving at the library. 

Program Supplies in the bag:

Two page "Pointless Animals" memory game kit on white cardstock

1 baggie containing glow-in-the-dark pony beads and 2 googly eyes

1 jellyfish body

Program Supplies to gather at home:

Scissors

Thin-tipped black marker

Crayons/colored pencils
