Nature Adventures for Tots: ages 2-4 with an adult

Healthy snacking for all in our organic p-patch!

Discover lots of "little wonders" in the park!











Bring your child or grandchild to Magnuson Park for a hands-on nature adventure!

Spring is a magical time of year, when each week brings new life into the gardens and natural areas of Magnuson Park.  Each week of this Nature Adventures for Tots class also brings something new: a different theme for our nature stations, story time, and nature walk!   Parents and grandparents will enjoy the experience of discovering “little wonders” with their toddlers each step of the way, and will also receive a take-home activity sheet each week with fun ways to continue exploring these nature themes at home!

Class fee includes 1 adult & 1 child, and a second child can attend for half price! (there is no fee for infants) After minimum enrollment is reached for each 3-class session, registration will be available for $15 single-class attendance too.  Call Magnuson Community Center at 206-684-7026 for details on how to register a second child or how to register for a single class.

Instructors: Emily Bishton and Magnuson Nature Docents

Location: Magnuson Brig/Ravenna Room,  P-Patch, and nearby park areas
