Welcome back to a fun fall with Colleen. Children and their adult companion will discover all the wonderful ways that nature’s creatures get around- flying, hopping, slithering, and swimming. We will observe how birds and insects fly, how fish swim, animals hop, seeds move and lots more. This program encourages learning through movement, singing, crafts, games, stories and great adventure!
