Family Workshop: Backyard Adventures: How do we play outdoors?

June 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Amanda Thomsen, author of Backyard Adventure, will be teaching at Lurie Garden! In this fun class, kids and their parents will learn how dirt is actually good for everybody, how to get ready to play, get ideas for new activities and ways that parents can help to foster a love of the outdoors. Part presentation and part hands-on, parents and kids can build structures together out of loose parts at the end of class.
