Rooted in Play: Kid’s Nature Hour with Taiylor Kriss [Ages 2-5]

July 12 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Come join us for two hours of nature play at Fox Haven Farm with Taiylor Kriss – let’s get rooted in play!

Let your little ones explore the wonders of nature through play, activities, and learning.

This immersive experience offers children the opportunity to connect with nature, unleash their imaginations, and take the lead in their own learning adventure. Children will engage with the natural world through guided activities that promote holistic development, foster a sense of wonder, and encourage meaningful interactions with their surroundings.

Suited for ages 2-5.

Parents are welcome to actively participate in all activities

*Kids should bring their own water bottles, snacks, and outdoor gear depending on weather.
