Wednesday, June 10, 2020 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

06/10/2020 2:00pm 06/10/2020 4:00pm World Wednesday: Korean Jegichagi This year's Summer Reading Program theme is "Imagine Your Story." All summer long you can learn about fairy tales, folk tales and mythology from around the world and apply these wonderful stories to create your own! On Wednesdays, join us for an activity that will help us learn and understand something new about different world cultures. We are kicking off our World Wednesdays with a fun game anyone can play called Jegichagi, similar to hackey sack. In Korea, children usually play alone or with friends in winter seasons, especially on Lunar New Year. To play, you kick a jegi up in the air and keep on kicking to prevent it from falling to the ground. In a one-to-one game, a player with the most consecutive kicks wins. In a group game, the players stand in a circle, and take turns kicking the Jegi. Today we will make our own jegis from washers and streamers, and library friends and expert jegi players from Korea will teach us how to play!
