ACTIVITY FOR KIDS
The value of creativity is the mental growth in children that there are always opportunities for trying out new ideas, and new ways of thinking, problem solving, and that no one problem only has one solution! Allowing children to demonstrate their creativity in any task celebrates the child’s uniqueness and self-expression, and offer excellent opportunities to understand each child more.
Please bring your child to our 3rdAnnual Lavender Festival where your youngster will explore creativity in painting lavender fields. We will have canvases, paints and brushes and your child will have their own mental freedom in painting a still life.
Your child will go home with unique artwork he or she made in between the purple hues of lavender fields.

Have you ever noticed children listening to a story so attentively that the environment where story is told is completely quiet? Or have you ever noticed children participating in a story so actively that everyone in the environment wants to contribute? If so, then you've witnessed the 'magic of story time'!
Stories and storytelling have always has been an important part of each culture, being used in many communities to assist individuals to learn the complexity of their culture. The telling of stories is a powerful way to communicate knowledge about dealing with life issues in a positive and thoughtful way. In today’s stories it seems that more and more it is obtained from a gadget or device... not that this is a bad thing all together but the believe and expressions which are needed to be passed from generation to generation must be told from the mind, heart, and soul of those that have gone before them.
The story telling is for both the young and old but the true values and virtues are from our elders whom remember the way that it was and the way that it should be. Cherish the opportunity of when there is the time and place to open your heart and share memories and lessons learned with today’s youth.
We will be holding a story time telling with stories from around the world, with wisdom twist to all young listeners who want to learn from the life experiences about our human cultures.
