After that I started finding other librarians' Angry Birds™ programs including Bryce Don't Play, The Show Me Librarian, Teen Librarian Toolbox, PUBYAC, & Future Librarian Superhero.
Several of my ideas also came from Pinterest. Check out my Angry Birds Event Pinterest board for more inspiration.
To start the program, I asked the kids why the birds are so angry. Of course they told me because the pigs had stolen their eggs and planned to eat them. We then went on an egg hunt in the children's section. Finder of the most eggs received an Angry Birds™ Coloring and Activity Book.
After the egg hunt, I shared from the National Geographic book: the different levels, the Angry Birds, and a few real angry birds (Northern Cardinal, Canada Goose, and Blue Jay).
After sharing the book, it was time to play a life size version of the game. I had been saving flat pieces of cardboard for months and had a plethora of paper towel roll tubes from past crafts. We used wadded up sheets of green paper as pigs. Our projectiles were rubber ducks, small bouncy balls, Ping-Pong balls, and practice golf balls.
an activity sheet from Expressive Monkey to draw our own Angry Birds™. I also had photo props for the kids to ham around with (beaks & eyebrows). I found the patterns on The Party Animal Blog.
Angry Bird Coloring sheets, and the kids could check out books from a Nonfiction bird book display.
I did this event twice this spring. A total of 32 kids and 26 adults attended. I'll definitely be using this event again in the future.
