Event Series Event Series: Story Time

Story Time – Free for ALL

Saturday, December 16, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

Our final story time of the year will be on the Plaza and free for all to attend! No RSVP is required.

Kendall Hayes, author of Santa, where are you?, will be here reading his book and Miss Marie will read Tomten by Astrid Lindgren (author of Pippi Longstocking). After the readings, kids will make a Swedish holiday craft- candy cracker aka Smällkaramell and enjoy Swedish gingerbread cookies and lingonberry juice.

This event is perfect for children of all ages who have a love for stories, nature, and exploring their creative side. Children can work on their fine motor skills and socialize with peers. Parents and guardians are more than welcome to participate and share in the joy of discovery with their little ones.

The Ruth Bancroft Garden is not only an extraordinary living museum of plants but also a place where imaginations bloom. We believe in fostering a deep connection between children and nature, inspiring them to appreciate the beauty and wonder of the world around us.

Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity for your little ones to experience the magic of Story Time at The Ruth Bancroft Garden. We look forward to sharing this wonderful experience with you and your family!

Come, let’s create cherished memories together amidst the beauty of nature and stories!
