Explore and Discover – Creatures in the Garden
Kids ages 5-8
8:30 am-3:30 pm with aftercare optionsWe will have a fun and exciting week exploring creatures that live in the garden and beyond. We will create habitats for insects, search for all kinds of critters that are hiding all around, imagine we are pollinators sipping nectar from a giant flower, learn about animal tracks and make tracks from plaster molds, among lots of other fun activities. Our snacks will have a creature theme every day.

We will also explore the garden’s ecosystem, observing the animals and insects that live in this space. In addition, we will have a craft/art project related to the daily theme based upon food from various cultures and places, such as New Mexican blue corn tamales, Italian bruschetta, Oregon Trail johnny cakes and blueberry cobbler, and Asian Pacific stir fry. Come join us for a culinary adventure in the garden!
