Little Sprouts Nature Club

Join us this summer for the Little Sprouts Nature Club, where we explore God’s creation through story and play!

Select summer Wednesdays, 11am-12pm. Meet on the playground.

During our time together, we will build community, practice mindfulness, listen to a story, wonder together, and explore nature through activities. (Activities subject to change.)

Kids and their grownups are welcome to bring a packed lunch to have after our activity time. Feel free to stay after to play on our playground, too!

Grownups will need to be present, are always welcome to join in on the activities, and may be needed to help their littlest ones with some of the materials we will be using.

Activities will be moved indoors if the weather is inclement.

June 12, 2019 – “The Home Builders,” by Varsha Bajaj. Kids will use various loose materials (rocks, sticks, bark, leaves, etc.) to have fun and use their imagination to create animal “homes.”

June 26, 2019 – “A Walk Through The Woods,” by Louise Greig. *Children will explore the process of creating nature mandalas using various loose materials.
