New Early Childhood Programming at Renfrew!
Join our interpretive staff for an hour-long program designed especially for little learners! Divided into three 20-minute segments, children will make a craft, enjoy a song and story, then participate in sensory play – all inspired by life on our historic Pennsylvania German farmstead.
Craft: First, children and their accompanying grown-ups will make farm animal hand puppets from paper bags. Cut out and color three different kinds: a pig, a sheep, and a duck.
Song & Story: Next, we’ll use our puppets while we sing “Old Man Royer Had a Farm” and read an interactive storybook together.
Sensory Farm Play: Last, participants will have a chance to act out typical farm chores including “milking” our faux cows, “washing” laundry on a scrub board, carding fluffy “wool”, and “planting and harvesting” pretend veggies in sand.
Grades: K–5 Cost: $5 member, $6 non-member. Location: Pine Hill Recreation Area
The group will go on a hike—a spring scavenger hunt looking for animal tracks, feathers, flowers, butterflies and more. Activities including listening to a nature story, and planting a flower to take home.
