Class Experience

🌱Spring into imagination and wonder in this Story Concert with a Magical, Musical Fox-Lady! Sign up for single event, grab a classpack or register for the whole "semester". 

Inside activity! Rain or shine! 

🌎The world needs more time to wonder! 🦊Frolic the Fox, featuring Kathryn Para, helps to spark wonder in families through nature, story, song & active play. Infused with mindful vibes and parenting tools, We will explore childhood themes with active pretending, imagination, music, and a featured book. Consistent themes include seasons, nature, social-emotional concepts and “Reading Makes Fairy Dust”. 

This class is full of active adult participation, including greeting, set up and tidy time, which we will do joyfully with songs that you can use later with your children! The interaction starts right away, and story concert starts 5-10 minutes into the scheduled start time. This allows Frolic to connect with chidlren, sing-spell names and help them to be comfortable with the space. It also will give you "GuideNotes" songs as tools for your kiddos!

Bonus Before & After: Get your steps in and wiggles out with 🦊Frolic the Fox’s Sip & Stroll, a bonus for 🌎WonderTime families and open to all who sign up (free). This event is designed to build community and provide a meet-up space and time for parents with young children, from which they can walk, run, roll or explore.
