Playful Paws Playgroup at Franklin Park Zoo – Weds in Feb!

Circles and Squares, Everywhere!: Exploring Animal Shapes
• Wednesday, February 3 – 10:15 – 11:00 a.m.
• Wednesday, February 10 – 10:15 – 11:00 a.m.
• Wednesday, February 24 – 10:15 – 11:00 a.m.
This playgroup is as much for the caregivers as it is for the “cubs.” Get out of the house on a winter’s day and bring your little one (18 months- 3 years) to Franklin Park Zoo for some open play and animal exploration. At each class, we’ll learn through looking, touching, and movement. The possibilities are endless and may include: story times, animal encounters, biofacts, simple crafts, and more! If the weather is nice, we may even go for romps outside! February’s theme is Animal Shapes, so we will explore the shapes we see in nature and take part in some interactive shape activities. $24 Members/$30 Non-Members for entire series (per adult/child pair).

Space is limited so register soon! To learn more call 617-989-3742.
