Nature Magic Programs
Are your children fascinated by the magiCAL mystery of the forest? Do they love to hunt for nature’s treasures and make special creations?
Join us on August 19-22 from 9am - 3pm daily for a series of Nature Magic Programs in for children entering grades 1-3!
Choose just one day, two, three, or all four.
Each day has an exciting theme that will be sure to awaken your child’s sense of wonder and creativity! In addition to thematic activities, every program will include one or more opportunities to explore a new corner of Farrington’s property, whether it be a trail, the pond, the garden, or our farm animals.
Monday, August 19
From goats, to birds, to bugs, and everything in between, Farrington’s property offers a myriad of ways for children to encounter both wild and domesticated animals. Pond exploration, scavenger hunts, farm animal visits, and more will engage kids in the magic that is having a connection to animal life.

Who are nature’s magical builders? Let’s investigate the enchanted homes that are built in the forest by spiders, birds, and small mammals. Then we’ll build our own! We will use natural materials to create a variety of dwellings that invite creatures big and small.

Let’s Make Mud!
This day is for the child that loves to get messy! We will playfully experiment with mud painting, mud kitchens, making art with natural tints, and more. A hose is available for cleaning up before going home.
The program takes place on Farrington’s 75-acre property of woods, fields, and ponds, located at 295 Cambridge Turnpike in Lincoln. Our driveway is situated on Rt. 2 eastbound, a half mile from the 95 intersect.
The program will be led by Farrington’s talented staff who have expertise in informal and environmental education, the arts, and working with elementary-aged youth. All lead staff have current First Aid and CPR certifications.
Children should arrive with a non-perishable lunch. Farrington will provide daily snacks and drinking water.
We will enroll 36 children a day and maintain a 1:12 ratio.
