Hannah Seneh Community Day School In Carroll Gardens Invites To Its Annual Tu Bishvat Festival

Hannah Senesh Community Day School at 342 Smith Street in Carroll Gardens will be hosting its annual Tu Bishvat Festival on Sunday, January 24th from 9 am to 12 pm. Bring the kids, aged 2 to 10,  to enjoy activities to mark this ecological awareness day.

Here is more information:"Tu Bishvat is Israel's Birthday of the Trees and is a special time to celebrate the environment and our natural surroundings. Our unique event will feature interactive storytelling and a variety of crafts and art workshops run by local artists and community organizations."

Here is the schedule for the event:
*Music with Timbalooloo: 9:30am
*Play Me a Story: 10:30am The Tree Program: Two stories – Under the Shade of the Mulberry Tree: Told with shadow puppets, this story retells an old Chinese folk tale in which a greedy rich man is outwitted by a beggar to whom he sells the shade of his mulberry tree; and a Tu B’Shevat version of The Hatseller and the Monkeys: the familiar story of a man who sets off to sell his hats, only to have them stolen by a tree full of mischievous monkeys. This fun, very interactive story is a favorite!
*Arts and Crafts: Recycled materials craft projects, eco workshops, planting, and more.
The price for the event is $5 per person.
