These workshops are designed for any age. The younger the child, the more help the grandparent will offer!
July 14th – All About Plants. Explore the WWPL gardens and boxwood maze. Use the blooming flowers as inspiration for a petal collage and paint with vegetables. Learn what might have been in the gardens in 1856 and plant a portable garden to take home!
July 15th – Cooking. Mix ingredients to make your own small load of bread. Taste some edible flowers, and make your own paints from fruits and vegetables. Finish the morning with instant ice cream made in a zip lock baggie!
July 16th – Architecture. Construct a model of a building using gum drops, marshmallows, toothpick and sugar cubes. Design a miniature garden gate from glue, glitter and wire.
