All New Winter Themes
January Warm Woollies
We’ll learn all about the farmers and sheep who bring us our warm woolly wear. We’ll read The Mitten and The Hat by Jan Brett, do wool crafts and play in the snowy barnyard!
February Sweet Treats
Does chocolate grow on trees? Yes! And farmers make our sweet treats possible. We’ll learn all about what goes into our tastiest treats, make our own chocolate from scratch, read some sweet stories and show some love to our farm animal friends.
March Maple Majesty
More sweet farming right here in Maine. As the weather warms and we’re all ready to shake off winter we’ll learn all about tapping, sapping, and boiling down maple syrup. And we’ll need to have some pancakes with that!
