Bookbug Mini Makers do Matisse

Rozelle House, Rozelle Park, Monument Road, Ayr KA7 4NQ
Tuesday 15 May, 10.30 am – 2.30 pm

Rozelle House has invited all Bookbug’s little friends to come out to the park for a fun filled time.  Take in a Bookbug Session before exploring Matisse Magic Garden – tents, a den, mirrors, ribbon weaving and lots of sensory surprises.  Then join us in the gallery to view the Matisse exhibition before creating your very own masterpiece. You might even be lucky enough to see Big Bookbug. Why not explore the park and find the Gruffalo Tree and the World War One carvings while you are there? Bookbug Sessions and Matisse Magic Garden will be outdoors (weather permitting) but we have contingency plans!

These FREE events are suitable for children under 5 years. There is no need to book, just come along!


Bookbug’s Big Giggle at Girvan Library

May 23, 2017

We had a lovely morning with our beautiful little gigglers as we celebrated Bookbug Week at Girvan Library 😍😂

Congratulations to Olivia who won the coveted mini Bookbug, and brothers Tom and Jack for winning “That’s not my train”. They were absolutely delighted!

Catch the reading bug at your local library, join us at our weekly Bookbug Sessions.

Bookbug’s Big Giggle at Symington Library

May 22, 2017

We had a Higgledy Piggeldy Day at Symington Library to get some giggles for Bookbug Week and we had some very original fashion choices! We had tickle rhymes, a photo booth to get a souvenir snap with Bookbug, a mask making craft, a story called I Love You Just The Way You Are by Tammi Salzano (it seemed quite appropriate) and of course BUBBLES!!

The prize for best Higgledy Piggledy costume went to Emelie and Callan – superb costumes!

Thank you all the mums and tots who came along and joined in wonderfully.

Around the world with Bookbug

May 18, 2016

This year’s Bookbug Week (16-22 May 2016) is celebrating ‘Around the world with Bookbug’ and we have been celebrating too!

On Monday and Tuesday our Bookbug sessions had an international theme to inspire children and adults alike to explore songs and rhymes from around the globe.

At Monday’s session we had lots of fun learning traditional Turkish songs and rhymes and sharing yummy treats.

On Tuesday, Bookbug shared songs and rhymes in French and scrummy madeleines. We also got creative with crafts. Where are we going to visit next…?
