Play Date with Nature
Make a “Play Date” with your little naturalist! There is no better way to connect to your child and to nature than with this new interactive outdoor program for children ages 4-10. Play Date activities will pair students with parent/guardians for activities that will focus on a variety of nature-based themes. Ponder the possibilities of pond life, life on a log, colors, shapes and textures of nature, and more!
Please note: The purpose of the Play Date programs is to help parentsconnect their children to creative play and learning in the out-of doors. Therefore, parents will be active participants – along with their children – in activities that VLM educators will model, then help supervise.
