Hi, LBX’plorers! For today’s Virtual Kids Club, we’ll be bringing a bit of beach fun indoors. Our book pick for this week is The Sandcastle That Lola Built, written by Megan Maynor and illustrated by Kate Berube. 

This summertime story joins Lola as she and her new friends build the most beautiful sandcastle on the beach. Whether they’re collecting sea glass or searching for the perfect seashells, the group will remind you of the powers of hard work and good friends. If you’d like to read along at home, purchase a copy of the book here

After story time, make a beach-themed footprint painting that you are “shore” to love! You’ll find the list of needed craft materials below.

Materials Needed:
– Craft paints (ocean + beach colors)
– Paintbrush
– Small canvas or thick construction paper 
– Wipes (optional)

Until we can meet in-person again, the LBX’plorers Kids Club will be held online. All LBX’plorers Kids Club events, along with other fun content from LBX businesses, can be found here on our blog.
