2017 was an incredible year for the Kids’ Program at Swansons. We built up the program more than ever before, with monthly hands-on activities to inspire creativity and curiosity about the natural world around us. Each engaging, hands-on activity was a learning experience that gave kids' something to create and take home.
Anticipate bigger and better activities to come in 2018 for the newly-named Swansons Kids’ Club! We’re hosting activities on the 3rd Saturday of each month* and extending the drop-in time to 10:00am-2:00pm. Some activities are happening on both Saturday and Sunday and a couple are month-long, self-guided activities, so see our Kids’ Club 2018 Calendar of Events for dates and details.
*Exception: November's activity is the 2nd Saturday.
Our first activity of 2018 is a special activity to kick-off the 2018 Kids' Club: painting a bird feeder or birdhouse. Merge your love for creativity with your love for nature when you drop in to decorate your own wooden bird feeder or birdhouse with colorful paints! Your little ones will love it, and so will the birds. While you get creative, learn all about backyard birding from our Bird Ambassadors, Swansons' experts who love sharing information about our local bird wildlife and how our backyards can help them thrive.
We have a lot of thank yous to give out to all the families that joined us in 2017! We loved planting, playing, and making memories each month with you and your little ones. It was a year full of fun. Here are some of our favorite snapshots:
Thank you for joining us in 2017! Mark your calendar for the fun-filled year ahead and see you in 2018!
