Friday Fundays - Open to Children of All Ages!
Kick off the weekend early with fun nature-themed crafts & outdoor activities*! May's theme is Pond Explorers - we'll hike down to the Bluebird Pond, explore pond life and have craft time.
Spending time in nature provides a variety of benefits to you and your kids. Exposure to nature contributes to “emotional restoration, decreases stress, can decrease symptoms of anxiety, can elevate mood; kids who get to experience this kind of play and learning are happier, healthier and smarter,” according to Cathy Jordan, research director for the Children & Nature Network.
