Habitat Class Information


About

Habitat Classes are a fantastic introduction to PUDDLESTOMPERS programming and a great first class for any age.  During each class we investigate a different habitat or the animals that live in it. Activities include hands-on exploration, games, songs, craft, snack, and a story.  Participants receive an informational handout at the end of each class in order to extend learning into the home! Sign up for as many classes as you wish!
