  • Dates: 5/1, 5/8, 5/15, 6/5, 6/12 (*skip the week of 5/29)
  • It’s “drop off” for this class but TLCCLT is such a lovely space that caregivers may want to stay to walk the grounds, read, and relax. 

Our classes will include learning new skills using handiwork and natural materials. We will focus on creating and making using inspiration, instructions, and individual creativity. The instructor will guide and support the students towards their finished product and creation.

Note: If there is light rain we will set up under the shelter. Parents will be notified if the class needs to be rescheduled due to extreme weather or temperature.  

Class Schedule: 

Week 1:  Earth Day week: recycled paper pots. Our students will create bowls using strips of recycled paper, a flour glue mixture, and a bowl or pot for the form. 

Week 2: Mosaic garden stones. Our students will make 9 inch circular garden stones. 

Week 3: Build a bird house. Our students will build bird houses using prefabricated kits. 

Week 4: Mini basket weaving. Our students will either weave simple paper baskets or yarn baskets. TBD based on the group! 

Week 5: Woodworking. Our students will create using loose parts and wood pieces, popsicle sticks, foraged fallen sticks, dowels, cardboard tubes, recyclables, tacks, small hammers/nails, sandpaper, light tools, wood glue, low heat glue guns, cardboard, googly eyes, and who knows what else.

Play = Learning

"For a child there is no division between playing and learning; between the things he or she does 'just for fun' and things that are 'educational.' The child learns while living and any part of living that is enjoyable is also play."  Penelope Leach
