Where does an acorn sleep? How did the butterfly get its name? When a dandelion and a feather become friends, what do they do for fun? This class is packed full of discovery, team building, and creative play! Through games, puppetry, and guided exercises, we create our own stories using the objects, plants, and creatures we find in the garden. Each day as we explore, we deepen our understanding of the environment around us and find our place within it. This course culminates in a filmed showcase of original stories that interact with nature in a new way. Sprouting Imagination is a chance to learn, grow, make friends, and let your imagination go wild!
