Digital Miss Mariah

Hello my friends!  I miss seeing you in the real world, but I am SO GLAD I can still see you in the digital world!  Check out some of my ideas for staying in touch below – if you have any other ideas, please reach out!  We will get through this together!

Video Pals

Do you want to ask me a question?  Tell me something cool?  Show me your artwork or your awesome toy?  SEND ME A VIDEO!!! You can email me your video and I will send my response back to you!  Email me: mariah@topshamlibrary.org.

Requests

Is there a song you want me to learn?  Do you want to discuss a book that you read?  Do you want a personalized lullaby video?  I am taking requests!  No request is too small or too silly, let me know what would make you happy and I will try my best to make it happen!  Email me your requests: mariah@topshamlibrary.org.

Digital Storytimes

I’ll admit, I’m not the most tech-savvy person in the world!  Bear with me as I get used to learning how to use my camera (who knew text appears backwards on the screen but normal in the video?!?!)!

Baby & Me

Music & Rhyme Time

Do you want a shaker to play at home?  Check out these ideas for homemade shakers and musical instruments!

Water Bottle Shakers (I recommend wrapping the top with duck tape to make it extra secure and remove any choking hazard!)

Different types of shakers (I recommend staying away from the easter egg shakers if your child is very young, as they can be a choking hazard for babies – older kids who are past the “tasting” phase would be fine though)

Sleepy Storytime

Preschool Storytime

Art project to go with Letter W Storytime:

Use blue and green markers to color on a coffee filter (if you don’t have a coffee filter, paper towels, tissue paper or regular paper would all work as well).

Dip a paintbrush in water and paint over the markers to create a watercolor effect!
