The Adventures of Roy G. Biv: The Color Red

Well howdy friends,

You can pick up a new Grab-n-Go activity bag from the library each week during Summer Reading, June 1-August 8! Our sweet old chameleon pal, Roy, has been helping us to prepare some awesme activities to keep your hands & your minds busy all summer.

This week, we explored the first color we seen in a rainbow: RED

"A rainbow is caused by sunlight and atmospheric conditions. Light enters a water droplet, slowing down and bending as it goes from air to denser water. The light reflects off the inside of the droplet, separating into its component wavelengths--or colors. When light exits the droplet, it makes a rainbow."( Accessed 5/27/21)

You can find out more about rainbows from the scientists SciJinks then try making a rainbow.

Now, let's see what Ms. Annie & Roy are up to this week:

Another fantastic idea for making a traditional (& beautifully complex) Mexican cut paper art, called papel picado. or take a virtual trip to the China Paper Cutting Museum.

I hope you are excited to start working with your piece of red paper.

We love to see what you have made. You can snap a picture & share on the library Facebook page. Tag us #HCLROYGBIV.

Remember, Summer Reading starts June 1. All ages are invited to participate---we have something for everyone, babies to adults. Prizes! Activities! Reading! All ages are invited to participate! Patrons can complete a virtual or in-person experience. Registration for Summer Reading with Hampton Community Library can be done online or in-person at the library.

Toodleloo, Kangaroos!
