My Magic Plate

This workshop teaches students basic nutritional facts and food groups in a fun hands-on way! Students will be introduced to the USDA guidelines for good nutrition using the newly revised and simplified icons developed for choosemyplate.gov. Colorful props and games are used to inspire healthy eating habits and illustrate optimum nutrition choices. Activities include Make a Plate, in which students make their own plate to take home, and Food Group Bingo, in which kids attempt to be the first to make a balanced meal to win the prize. Activities are also connected to the plants and animals that live and grow at Fairytale Town.  There is an additional $1 per person (students and adults) fee for this workshop.

Garden in a Glove

Students create mini-greenhouses while learning how seeds germinate and what they need to grow. Students work together to create a “Garden in a Glove” to take back to the classroom for observation and care. There is an additional $1 per person (students and adults) fee for this workshop.
