Could you little one be a groundcover kid?
Does your 3-5 year old kiddo like nature and having fun?
Join us this summer for kid friendly activities & stories.
Each Monday from July 9th until August 13th Kyla will lead an age appropriate nature based activity after the reading of a story with a related theme. Meet at groundcover at 10am for an hour of fun with nature.
The theme & activity will be listed in the events section on our Facebook page, posted the Tuesday prior.
Even though this is geared towards preschool aged kiddos we leave it up to parents to determine if their kiddo (younger or older) would enjoy the activities.
There is no charge for these events. We are happy to spend time nurturing the love of nature.
Parents are required to remain on site during the activities but are welcome to wander the grounds, if their child does not need them

Participants will learn about which plants print reliably and will have a chance to experiment with other plants.
$60 fee includes all of the materials, class time and taking home your very own eco-printed item. We have room for 10 participants. Preregistration is required to ensure that we have the necessary tools, etc. Contact us for more information or to register.
