Saturday, February 1 – 11am -1pm – Join us for an Early Childhood Playdate and Workshop


Join the Principia Club of Austin for a playdate and workshop with Principia’s Early Childhood Principal Dorothy Halverson. Explore how to help young children learn spiritual concepts and Bible stories. Concrete examples will be shared, and materials for making some of the activities will be provided. Childcare will be available during the 45-minute workshop; afterwards, children will be invited to make crafts, sing songs, and gather for a brief story time. The activities are geared toward two- to seven-year-olds, but older children and infants are welcome, too.

Parents, grandparents, Sunday School teachers, and friends are all invited to attend this hands-on workshop.
