Tuesday, June 26th Secret Spaces & Tiny Places

9:30-10:30, 11:00-12:00 & 1:00-2:00 

There’s something mysterious to young children about the small things in life, enticing them to look more closely and wonder what life would be like if they were that small. Young children are curious by nature, and a little closer to the ground where the world of little things is waiting to be discovered. After reading the inspiring “Children of the Forest”, we will go for a walk in the woods on our own quest for secret spaces and tiny places in nature. Be it beetle bugs, birds or the elusive trolls and fairies, we will investigate, discover and explore the forest floor! Upon our return we will have our own attempt at creating mini shelters for fairies, bugs and any other tiny critters! Bring your favorite mini friend to share in building your secret space (examples: GIJoe, Polly figure, etc..)
