This Months Story Time – Birds of a Feather by Sita Singh

Sunday, March 3rd, 2024 - 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Gather in our outdoor reading area in the shade of the southern live oak where Ms. Barbara will read the children a story related to nature. 

After the story, Ms. Cintia encourages imagination and mindfulness through yoga. Children (and parents too!) participate in breathing exercises and yoga poses based on the subject of the story and the animals in our sanctuary. Afterwards, the children can express their own creativity by participating in a craft inspired by the story. 

Story Time is free with paid admission (or membership) to Flamingo Gardens. An adult must stay with the child during story time, yoga and the craft. For more information, contact the Education Department at 954-473-2955 x115.
