We read The Great Kapok Tree and Grandmother Oak (the hub came to my rescue when I couldn't find the Kapok book, bringing it just in the nick of time!). Rachel of Go Wild! programs, brought Jasper, the Hawk-Headed parrot, for the children to meet, and supplied the seeds for our craft!
We had about 11 children total attend. After storytime, we folded origami pots, and planted sunflower seedlings in them. After they were done, Alice, the owner of Mountain Mercantile, gave each child a free scoop of ice cream! Thank you to Rachel & Alice!!
