As the weather changes, we’re going to the birds with a fun project to teach children the appreciation of wildlife right in their very own backyard.  Ms. Vicki and her creative crafting crew will be making Pinecone Bird Feeders with the children in the Kids Market Zone.  With this project, kids will love being able to watch the birds eating from the feeder they crafted at market. It will give them a sense of satisfaction and fosters stewardship to see that they can help their feathered friends find something to eat.
Kids Market Zone activities begin at 9:00am and are open to all children between the ages of 3 and 14. The Holy Trinity Cathedral is hos of the Ocean Pines Farmers Market Kids Zone. A Small donation is suggested, but not required for a child participating in an activity at the Kids Market Zone.
