Children let their imagination run wild in the aisles at a creative education session in Gaywood Library on Wednesday.

The library had 35 children, aged from four to 11, as well as 25 adults, attend the Mythical Maze Junk Modelling session which encouraged youngsters to learn through play.

Recyclable materials such as kitchen rolls, egg cartons and yoghurt pots had been collected by South Wootton Infant School for the library to use, which were made into a vast variety of different mythical objects such as dragons, castles and robot monsters.

But what was the most unusual and creative thing to be made? “We had a really good yeti” said community librarian Elena Parkin. She added: “They really used their imagination. We also showed them that you don’t always need to throw things away”.

Some of the creations have been left at the library to be entered in a competition at the end of this month and are currently on display.

Mrs Parkin said: “They have really brightened the place up.”

Throughout the rest of the summer holiday, the library is also holding summer reading challenge sessions, which encourage children to continue to read whilst enjoying the break from school.

If six books are completed, the child will earn a certificate and a medal.

Other treats at the library this summer include Bygone Beasts and Chinese Dragon Dancing.
