There’s a wee nip in the air, but it’s still perfect weather for hanging out in the grass, under a shady tree, and letting the seasons change around you. Kids love fall, and Ladew Gardens loves kids, so their Fall Story Time program is a perfect weekday activity for those looking to get the young ones out and about a bit. These nature-themed programs are for ages 2-6 years (with an adult, of course). When the weather is good, Story Time sessions take place outdoors under shade trees in several of Ladew’s gardens. Later in the season, they move indoors—but all still within the glorious setting that is Ladew.
Tomorrow’s Story Time is called Yellow Like the Sun. Focusing on the bright, cheery color, kids will look at flowers , leaves, birds and bees, finding yellow everywhere. Other activities later in the season will look at “terrific trees” and all of their amazing fall colors, as well as the feathers, fur, and fins that cover our animal friends and keep them warm as the seasons change. When the gardens officially close to the public for the year, and Story Time continues indoors, the stories will also be accompanied by craft projects; so you get a morning or afternoon of interactive nature stories, followed by making a fun, take-home craft. Perfect.
Ladew Gardens is located at 3535 Jarettsville Pike in Monkton. Tomorrow’s Storytime happens from 10:30 – 11:15am and 12:30 – 1:15pm. For a complete listing of activities and more information, visit www.ladewgardens.com.
