Every Wednesday you can drop by here and find new and special happenings in the Secret Garden. There’ll be crafts, great food, fun and laughter. So please be sure to come by and see us in our Secret Garden created just for you.
This week in our secret garden, we have had a mix of everything from ice, snow, torrential rains, and finally severely clear beautiful blue sky sunny weather.
With the changing of the seasons comes new little visitors to our grade. We heard the croaking of frogs down by the stream and have seen an abundance of robins and other spring time birds.
Inside the pages of A Year in the Secret Garden, we share how to actually build a birds nest. I’ll leave that for you to enjoy with family and friends.
Today we’re going on a Springtime scavenger hunt plus we’re making some edible bird nest yummies !!
