Sign Your Kids Up for Spring Break Fun

If you’re the parent of a child who attends Carroll ISD then you know Spring break is just around the corner– March 13 through March 17.

You may be wondering how you’re going to keep your kids busy and entertained for a whole week. Well, don’t worry we have some fun and educational classes that your kids will love.

Here are just a few ideas for parents:

You can sign up your kids for the Junior Naturalist Spring Break Camp 2017 at Bob Jones Nature Center. Kids will get an up-close look at local species and their habitat, create nature inspired art, and explore the terrain in the Cross Timbers Ecosystem with Master Naturalist and educator Robin Swindle.

Space is limited so hurry up and claim your spot to become a Junior Naturalist today! And don’t forget to check out the Bob Jones Nature Center website for more fun and educational classes for your kids, like the Dino Hunt which features a dinosaur “fossil” hunt and dinosaur crafts. The website is BJNC.ORG.
