Event description

Description

Children ages 3-6 and their adult caregivers are invited to join us for a two hour nature-themed monthly program. Each month our “sprouts” will use their senses to connect to the natural world through nature stories, short hikes, songs and nature crafts.

Participants will use all their senses to learn about the Cucurbitaceae Family of gourds and squash. We will go out to the Community Garden to investigate the vines and read Pumpkin Circle by George Levenson while at the gazebo. We will try some snacks made from squash, sort by color and size, and explore different textures in a mystery box.

Please let us know if your child has food allergies.

Wear comfortable clothes and shoes for walking outside. Don’t forget to bring water and sunscreen.

For liability reasons, adults and younger siblings must be registered as well as each Sprout attending class. While we do accommodate younger siblings, they must not disrupt class (although it is acceptable for parents/caregivers to excuse themselves for a few moments when/if necessary).
