Connecting children to their natural world through outdoor educational hands-on experiences
Hands on Nature
We are happy to tailor your party to your child’s favorite nature theme, or you may choose from one of the following:
Wild Amphibians - Learn what frogs, toads, and salamanders all have in common, and then search the woods for these fascinating creatures on a nature walk. We can also focus on a specific amphibian (for example, you could have a tree frog party).
Beautiful Butterflies - Learn about butterflies and their life cycles. Enjoy butterfly crafts and games afterward.
Exciting Insects - Spend your party discovering the differences between insects and other creatures. We will catch insects and other critters with our bug boxes, examine them, and then set them free. We will decorate our own bug boxes afterward.
Nature Explorers- We will search for different kinds of animal tracks, trails, and sign, then decorate a t-shirt with track signs and our fabric paints. ($5/extra per child).
Forest Scavenger Hunt - We will explore the woods to discover the answers to clues about nature.
Evening Campfire Program - We will roast marshmallows, sip hot chocolate, tell animal stories and have fun around an evening campfire. We can include a night hike, or just enjoy the fire all evening.
Evening Owl Hike - Enjoy an evening hike, and see if we can spot an owl! We will learn about these wonderful birds of prey and dissect an owl pellet afterwards.
You may choose a craft or activity from the list below, or come up with your own. All material costs are included in the price of the party, unless noted otherwise.
