Time Travelers at Jefferson Patterson Park

Here in Southern Maryland we need to drive a while to get anywhere.  This is especially true when it comes to educational programs for children.  One such is held at Jefferson Patterson Park in Calvert County, MD.  It is a lovely spot with a wonderful visitor center.  Additionally they have many trails including one that leads to an Indian hamlet and a kayak launch trail that takes visitors to a splendid private beach.

Lately we have been attending their monthly Time Travelers program which always includes a Pre-K storytime, a craft, and a game.  This week the theme was, “Lanterns During Colonial Times.”

We look forward to going every month and the educational staff there is wonderful.  FYI: This program is free but you do need to reserve a space in advance.
