 Last year I went to the YSS idea swap at a conference.  Another librarian shared the idea: TWINKIE PARTY. We hosted one this past summer and it was a huge success.
I wanted to display all the twinkies. The kids wanted to eat them.

If you need ideas to spice up your programming or want to share ideas where you excel, DONT MISS OUT.
