IH = Indian Hills. This week our semester begins, and that means two locations. Please read carefully to ensure you’re going to the right place on the right day with the right stuff.

Welcome to fall semester in Indian Hills! Let’s warm up with some Forest Games. If anyone has a copy of Forest School, we’re going to play Sleeping Bear and Wildfire in particular – all ages + abilities group games. Plus we’ll have these in the repertoire to play all year. If there’s another game you like, please come ready to share the rules and lead a round. I’m sure we’ll adapt as we go.

MAMA PLANNING MEETING. It’s a new semester, so let’s dig in! I’ll have the list of kids’ interests and we can loosely pair/assign weeks for the semester, along with ideas of how we *might* plan our attack. Bring ideas for your kids’ themes, if you have any, and help us brainstorm the others. Advance planning helps if we need to purchase ingredients/supplies for anything – and we can party plan for holiday celebrations together! The list will be made into a Google doc, adjusted as we go along, and the session plans are added to the calendar. Hopefully we can multitask this piece while the kids play!

A bit of foraging is always fun. Let’s bring our plant-identifying books and see what lives and grows here in the woods behind the building. Here’s a list of fall things to find in Denver that we can check for. We’ve also gathered loads of plantain here. If interested, bring collecting bags and knives.

Payment for the semester is due at our session – $125/family. If you have not officially joined, please fill out the form prior to your arrival. There are two spots available for this group, so you’re not too late!

Can everyone bring a box of popsicles? We can swap if we want, but we should be covered if everyone brings some. We do have freezer space. Once it cools down, I swear we’ll switch to making tea!

10 am – Free play while everyone arrives. Group games together!
11 am – Coloring quiet activity set up
12 pm – Lunch outside in the shade. Free play + mamas meeting!
1:00 pm – Foraging walkabout
2:00 pm – Popsicle time (you’ll bring popsicles, right?!?)
3:30 pm – Clean up, then outside play
4 pm – End of our rental period

Games + Activities Table
We will continue to share a table of games, puzzles and/or crafting materials. Bring whatever calming materials your kids enjoy + can share. We will also continue with the quiet room, which can be used for board games.

Plant ID books + collecting materials
Coloring books + colors to share (or game, craft or puzzle)
A blanket or chairs for outdoors
Lunch + snacks for your people
