The winter season brings a time of rest, renewal,

reflection and integration.

This is a good time to come together and craft stories, while still getting outside and enjoying the wonders of the season. Join Wild Craft Play ‘sCool while we integrate the fall lessons into teachings for teachers in the spring.  Follow us on Facebook and join in the conversation. Your feedback is invaluable!
