Giggles n Groovin' – Life Lessons Thru Movin'


This high energy interactive program teaches important character lessons through experiences, not just words. Using stories, songs, movement, activities, and colorful characters, children will be having fantastic fun as they play with a purpose. There are three adventures this session: “Angry Dinosaurs”, taming their tantrums and ours; “Superheroes Save the Planet” - this engaging series takes us from recycling to repurposing, and finally taking a pledge to care for our planet; and we'll wrap up the session by going "Down on the Farm", a rootin’, tootin’ good time learning about partnerships, hard work, and community celebrations. The supply fee is included for crafts, coloring sheets, weekly parent page, plus two take home peel/place story boards.
