Drums and Poems
May 18 at 11 a.m.
This is the session for children who like rhymes, silly songs, and rhythm. Georgia Sassen will lead them to create poems as a group, put them on the “poettree” and say them to the beat of hand drums. In the spirit of simplicity, parents will receive instructions on how to make one of the drums at home with repurposed materials and a staple gun. Kids learn that writing, like mural making, is a group activity and that words are like toys you can build and play with.

Spend the morning with naturalist Dick Walton searching for insects around Thoreau Farm. Judging by diversity and numbers, insects are perhaps the most successful form of life on this planet. Some amazing insects live here and we will track them down, look at them closely and see if we can identify some of the common ones. Fun for the whole family!
