Wheatscouts Wagon Ride
FAMILY DANCING * WAGON RIDES * MEADOW WALK
Family Contra Dancing with Mark Baumann -AND- wagon ride! Dress accordingly. Dancing is fun for all ages and doesn’t require previous experience.
Weather permitting, we are going to do a ‘seeds for socks’ activity where kids wear old adult sized socks over their shoes and one over their hands. We’ll hike a bit through the surrounding meadows and see what collects on our sock-covered hands and feet! If you’re willing to bring a couple of pairs of old adult socks, that would be helpful. If we run out of time, you can take this on at home. Thanks to www.outdoordiscoverycenter.org for this inspired activity! We’ll feature something that celebrates outside each month.
Looking forward to fun family time in the Wernette Woods!
This children’s program was started at Wheatland in 1987 with the purpose of educating children through music, dance, storytelling, crafts and nature while promoting family tradition and fellowship. Wheatscouts also gives the adults a chance to bond with other grown-ups while turning the little ones loose for a couple of hours.
Wheatscouts meet during the months from October – June, and are generally scheduled for the 2nd Saturday of each month from 11am – 1pm in the Gladys Wernette building on the Wheatland Music site. Each season kicks off and closes with a Wheatscouts Family Campout, held on site at Wheatland.
Wheatscouts is offered free of charge, is open to the publice and a small healthy snack will be provided (feel free to bring a snack to share as well). Each gathering is uniquely themed, so stay tuned to both the Wheatland website and Facebook page for up-to-date information.
