    Children will be building a felt “pizza” that reflects their personal likes, and they will explore where the various foods come from and what they can grow for fun and by themselves! They will be taking home seedlings (such as basil and tomato) to see how they can “grow” some of the pizza. By taking home these games, your child can continue to explore what can go into a pizza. You will be provided with a list of pizza items and their origins, so you both can explore together. Class is limited to 25 to ensure proper supervision and guidance.
