Welcome to Froggy Holler Winter Session!

Welcome to Froggy Holler!

Hello to all of our friends, old and new.  I am so excited to get out in the woods and play with you!

We will meet at Hamlin Park in Shoreline all week, which is at 16006 15th Avenue NE, Shoreline, WA 98155

We meet at the second parking lot you will come to, at the shelter by the playground. We will begin and end each session at the shelter, and I like to encourage kids not to head straight to the playgrounds during class time (though before is fine if you are early!).

Dress for outside play!  There is no bad weather, just inappropriate clothing.  At Froggy Holler, we get wet, dirty and stay outside no matter what the weather.  You will be much happier if you layer your outfit, wear rainproof clothes and waterproof shoes or boots.  I highly recommend rain pants, both for rain and sliding down hills.  Snow suits are also a great idea for winter, as long as it isn't too warm out.  Don't forget hats and gloves!

Pack a snack and a drink!  Kids are playing hard and get hungry in our class.  Please pack just enough for your child, due to allergies, we don't share snacks.  I also ask that you don't send your child with any nuts, peanut butter or trailmixes with nuts.  After the first week, I will know about any allergies in each class.  For now, its best to stay on the safe side.

A backpack!  Kids all carry their own gear, so a comfortable snack will help everyone feel better.  What should you pack?

A snack and water
Extra clothing or layers
A hat and gloves
Extra socks
Kleenex or handkerchief

Most important, here are the three rules of Froggy Holler.

Be Safe!
Be Respectful!
Have FUN!

We will go over the rules on the first day as well as practice the Froggy Holler call.  We practice this a lot in the beginning, but please remind your child that it is very important to stay with Teacher Kathleen during class!

Thank you so much for your support of outdoor education!   I'll see you in the woods!
