Programs for Preschoolers will be offered Wednesday mornings in September, from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. Each program will feature a story, visit to the farm, hands-on activity, and snack. The cost is $3.00 per person for Billings Farm & Museum members, and $5.00 per person for non-members (includes admission to the Farm & Museum).
Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf. Wednesday, September 5. In the fall, the trees put on a spectacular art show for us! We’ll read Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf, then travel across the road to the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park and look for signs of fall. We will make crowns with colored leaves and enjoy maple cookies for a snack.
The Boy and His Quilt. Wednesday, September 12. Making a quilt may be easy, or at least fun; sometimes though it might seem like a chore. Collecting scraps, cutting patches—and that’s just the beginning! Discover the steps a young boy goes through in making his very own quilt as we read The Boy and His Quilt. We’ll visit the quilt hall to see this year’s quilts, enjoy a snack with friends, and make your own paper quilt pattern.
Ten Red Apples. Wednesday, September 19. Ten red apples hang on the tree. Horse, cow, pig and the other farm animals each eat an apple, will there be enough for everyone? Join us for a trip to our orchard to see if there are any red apples on the trees. Enjoy an apple for a snack with friends. An apple tree craft will complete your visit.
Pumpkin Jack. Wednesday, September 26. Have you ever wondered what happens to your pumpkin after it has been carved? Follow the story of Tim and his pumpkin named “Jack” as they discover Jack’s new world. We’ll visit the pumpkin patch, make a pumpkin craft, and enjoy a pumpkin treat.
