Project Learning Tree has a new program: Grandparents as Environmental Educators

Project Learning Tree is piloting a new program: Grandparents as Environmental Educators!

We 10 grandparents to try this and provide feedback! If you have preschool-aged grandchildren, would like to receive a free Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood activity guide and music cd, AND earn a $25 stipend, then call us by 3:00 PM tomorrow-Wednesday! Be a member of our focus group and help us create something new!

Read the announcement below, then call 303-877-7585 immediately. Be one of the first 10 to call to receive the $25 stipend.

Did you play outside when young, not coming in until the dinner? Are you looking for inexpensive, entertaining and educational ways to engage and excite your young grandchildren outdoors without spending money on admission fees all the time? Have you read the very popular book, “Last Child in the Woods: Saving your child from Nature Deficit Disorder”? Do you lament that today’s children and their parents are often times more interested in “screens” –smart phones, video games, tablets, and other electronic toys and distractions?

Celebrate Grandparents’ Month with this workshop designed just for you! You’ll learn simple and fun ideas that will help you and your grandchildren connect with nature while they learn about counting, sorting, matching, colors, sounds, seasons, trees, vocabulary and more.

This hands-on workshop will cover various developmentally appropriate and thematic activities including snacks, literature, crafts, music, and inexpensive, natural materials for exploring and investigating. Take home the easy-to-use activity guide book and music CD filled with great ideas on how to engage three to six year-olds in outdoor exploration and play while helping them gain skills and vocabulary (30,000 words! Really!) to be ready for success in kindergarten and beyond-all in the convenience of your backyard or neighborhood park.

Thanks so much for your help! Share this with other grandparents! There are two workshops this weekend-on at Lookout Mt. Nature Center Saturday from 10-1, and one in Woodland Park, Sunday from 1-4. Go to www.coloradoplt.org for more information!
