Kinder Gardens: June 2017

My library recently acquired four garden beds for our community. I collaborated with my assistant director, who is a HUGE gardener, about this program.

I structured this program to have a mini storytime (think 10 minutes) followed by garden activities.

This was my set-up for the first Kinder Gardens:
