Wee Wonders Virtual Play Program
WEE WONDER VIRTUAL PLAY PROGRAM
A new digital multi-sensory adventure!
** Ages 3-6 **
Each week features virtual story times + themed Grab-and-Go Kit full of projects, supplies, and ideas to do at home!
Two Interactive Story Times will be offered online each week, live on Zoom, to enhance your child’s learning! Led by our experienced educators, each Story Time will feature a new story, songs, movement activities, and some guided play with show’n tell with all virtual classmates.
Our weekly Grab-and-Go Kits include project instructions in English & Spanish and materials to complete 3 hands-on science and art activities with your wee one at home. Each Kit also contains a sensory play item (like play-doh, slime, or moldable sand), several themed coloring pages, and ideas for more fun & easy home-based projects!
