STORY TIME IN THE CHILDREN'S GARDEN
Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021
Help promote early childhood literacy, healthy minds and bodies, and artistic imagination by joining us on the first Sunday of each month for Story Time in the Children’s Garden. Gather in our outdoor reading area in the shade of the southern live oak where Ms. Barbara will read the children a story related to nature. This month’s story is "The Terrible Plop" by Ursula Dubosarsky. Groups of 10 or less will rotate activities and spread out to provide proper social distancing. Face mask are required at this time.
After the story, Ms. Cintia encourages imagination and mindfulness through yoga. Children (and parents too!) participate in breathing exercises and yoga poses based on the subject of the story and the animals in our sanctuary. Afterwards, the children can express their own creativity by participating in a craft inspired by the story.
Story Time is free with paid admission (or membership) to Flamingo Gardens. An adult must stay with the child during story time, yoga and the craft. For more information, contact the Education Department at 954-473-2955 x115.
