Please join us for an adventure in the Whimsical Woods.
Date: Friday, July 12
(Optional: bring a picnic lunch to enjoy afterwards)
Location: Burritt on the Mountain
3101 Burritt Drive, Huntsville, AL 35801
Details: We will be doing both the educational story venues and the game before lunch. Anyone who wants to is welcome to stay for a picnic lunch and to play afterwards.
The story venues with lessons include Little Bo Beep’s sheep also had a job to do. They grew all that wool so she could stay warm, but what do you do with the wool? You will help Little Bo Beep prepare the wool to turn it into clothing and blankets. Peter Cottontail isn’t just for little kids. Learn the art of growing a garden in a small space. This will include the plant life cycle. Also learn about urban wildlife that will probably visit your garden too. Snow White’s friend will greet you at the sluice. You will learn the history of coal mining and pan for gems in the sluice. Watch out for the Wicked Stepmother!
The game is based on children's literature of the 1800's. The favorite hero has left, and those playing the game (our children) go from story to story trying to find a new hero. At each station they are given a new jewel for their crown, and at the end of the game, they are each given a button identifying them as heroes because they have demonstrated the various traits of a hero as they've gone though out the game.
Cost: $11.00 per person, adults and children. Children under 2 are free.
Sign-up Deadline: June 12
