Date: Tuesday, December 7, 2021

Location: William Paca House and Garden, 186 Prince George Street

Time: Program, 10 - 11 am; Garden Time, 11 - 11:30 am

Join us on select Tuesday mornings for storytime and fun activities in the William Paca Garden, a secret treasure in the Historic District of Annapolis. Each program is designed for little ones (4-7 years) with a book reading, song, craft/art project, and free time in the garden. The-Mitten-002

Nicki begged his grandmother “BaBa” for a pair of white mittens. Although she warned him that white mittens might be hard to find if they are lost in the snow, she made them for him anyway. Unfortunately, Nicki loses one of the mittens in the snow. Soon a mole, rabbit, hedgehog, owl, badger, fox, bear, and mouse find shelter in his mitten. How can 8 animals fit into a mitten? Join us and see what happens when the mitten is stretched out and no more animals can fit inside.  

Cost: $10 per Child and $5 per Adult for General Admission; $8 per Child and Free for Adults for HA Members and Volunteers; $5 per Child and Free for Adults for Family Circle Members
