Imagination Station: Safari
It’s Summer here on the East Coast, but it is always hot on the safari! Join Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Thiele on an exploration of animals found on the safari. Each day, we will learn about an animal that lives in the safari and imagine a day walking in that animal’s footprints. We will also explore our own forest at the Wheeler Farm to compare and observe similarities and differences in the climate, weather, and animal habitats!

Imagination Station: All about Nature
Has your child ever enjoyed using nature to create a house or building? How about a fort out of sticks? During these 2 weeks, your child will have a variety of materials ranging from sticks to rocks to pinecones as well as many other loose parts. The possibilities are endless! Your child can make a diorama out of acorns and stones or a board game using rocks as the moving “pieces”. We will look at photos for reference or simply use our imaginations as a springboard for our creativity.

Imagination Station: Magical Creatures
Does your child love to explore the world of fantasy? Do they like to imagine themselves as something extraordinary, with special powers of mystical magic? Come along and join us for a week of story, creation, discovery, and sensory play. Through literature, art, and games we will spend our days creating our own world of adventure enriched by the backdrop of our very own forest. With our capes, wings, and wands we will explore the woods and find everything we need for our potions and spells. Whether you are a fairy, a gnome, a wizard, or a witch, come live with us in the enchanting world of magical creatures!
