Easter Play Date & Egg Hunt

Please join us for a morning of MOPS fun as we celebrate Easter with our Easter Play Date & Egg Hunt. We will be meeting next Wednesday, March 20th at 10:00am at Derwood Bible Church (RAIN OR SHINE).

We will enjoy an Easter Egg Hunt, snack, and other simple activities & crafts.

If your little ones are interested in participating in the Egg Hunt please bring 1 dozen pre-filled plastic Easter eggs PER CHILD, preferably in an egg carton. We will use the eggs for the hunt and we will use the egg carton as both our craft and our "basket" for the egg hunt.

In order to make sure we are prepared for all the fun, please sign up by NOON on Monday, March 18th.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

St. Patty's Day Scavenger Hunt

Each year Brookside Gardens hosts the St. Patrick's Day Green and Growing Scavenger Hunt for young children (ages 2-6). Have some St. Patrick’s Day fun following the giant green leprechaun footsteps through the garden. He’s left some clues to help you through - to find where he’s going is all up to you! Along the way if it’s a nice day, leprechaun helpers will trick you into some healthy activities, all good fun in the sun, of course! This year's walk will take place on Friday, March 15th at 10:30am. All MOPS Moms and their kids are invited to attend. The event includes a walk/scavenger hunt, a craft, and a snack. Come enjoy the fun! For more information about Brookside Gardens, click here.

Date: Friday, March 15th
Time: We'll meet at 10:15AM inside the Visitors Center, and start our walk, guided by Brookside Gardens staff at 10:30AM.   
Place: Brookside Gardens (1800 Glenallen Avenue, Wheaton, MD)
Costs: $5.00/child ages 2-6 (no charge for infants, adults or children older than 6)
