Hear Ye! Hear Ye! A Royal Storytime

Boys and girls from all over the land of Burbank came to dream of being princes, princesses, knights, queens and kings today. After listening to stories, we made darling crowns (cut from Ellison dies and decorated with “jewel” stickers discovered at Lakeshore Learning in Pasadena). Pictures will be posted on my Flickr by the end of the weekend!
