“Hobbit & Faerie Hunters”
Ages 5 – 10 Skyliner Lodge – Almost Full
During our day of Wildheart Hobbit & Faerie Hunters, we will be doing just that! Kids will ‘hunt’ for perfect hobbit & faerie habitat, and create houses out of plants and natural materials for them to visit and enjoy. As participants unleash their creativity, they will learn the types of plants each magical creature prefers, based on the plant’s medicinal, or lack thereof, value. We will also discover what animals are friends with our hobbits & faeries based on what habitat they share. One important aspect of making faerie houses is choosing where to build. For this, we will wind our way through the trees and around the riverside stones in search of locations that will be the most likely to attract magical creatures. Throughout the day, we will practice hearing the language of birds, which all fantasy creatures know, so that we can decipher the messages of the winged ones. Join us for song, play, art, creativity and fun!
- Open their awareness to explore hidden faerie and hobbit habitats
- Build hobbit and faerie houses
- Activate houses with tones, potions, and chants
- Sing faerie songs
- Discover plant and animal friends of the magical forest creatures
