About this experience

Little Sprouts: A Garden Class for children aged 3-5 and their caregivers
Little Sprouts is a monthly class designed to foster a love and sense of wonder for the outside world in your child. Each month, we will explore a seasonal theme through a 5-senses garden walk, story-time, a hands-on craft or activity, and a take home kit. Little Sprouts is the most fun outdoors, so come prepared for the weather! (In the event of inclement weather, we will have an indoor location).
Feel free to bring your own snack for story-time!
This class is geared towards preschool age students. 
 
June's Theme: Birds
A garden is a home! Let's explore the garden to see how many birds we can find using our 5 senses. We will learn how birds build nests, why birds are important, and how to find them at home. Kiddos and caregivers will work together to make a birdhouse, and take-home instructions and materials to make a bird feeder. 

Pre-registration is required for supply prepperation. Each registration is good for one child and one adult. Adults need to be present to assist children with activities.
