Nature Sprouts - Marvelous Mud

Additional Information

Mud is truly a treasure to behold! We will learn about this squishy substance in “Squish! A Wetland Walk,” meet some of the creatures that live in our pond muck, and use our creativity and fine motor skills to make mudpies. 

Join Andrea Wallace-Noble for a morning packed with exciting and intentional activities centered around a different environmental theme on the first Saturday each month. We will read children’s books that introduce ecological concepts, make nature-themed crafts that utilize fine motor and creative thinking skills, observe and interact with our natural environment, and of course, have a lot of fun!

We will explore the great outdoors, so please come dressed for the weather. The program is intended for ages 3-6 years and a guardian to accompany them.
