After reading The Blue Balloon by Mick Inkpen, young explorers will set out on a virtual tour to discover a variety of aircraft. At each stop marked by a blue balloon, participants will look for 3D shapes within each aircraft structure. They will also explore different pilot costumes and practice counting skills.

Calling all miniature pilots, astronauts, and flight engineers! Children ages three to six are invited to join us on the path to discovery through the Sky Stuff Series. Choose from six fun, educational sessions — and explore planes, planets, puppies, poppies…and much more! Each month features a new and exciting aeronautical theme.
Each 50-minute virtual session includes a story, a discovery/adventure, and a craft. These sessions offer a great way to introduce little ones to the basics of aerodynamics and cultivate a love for literacy in an informal setting.
Choose your favourite themed session — or book the whole series! Preregistration is required.
