Exploring the World Through Stories


Exploring the World Through Stories is an immersive and interactive learning experience for kids that introduces them to new tales and different cultures around the world! Through traditional oral storytelling, folktales, crafts, movement and games, children will have the opportunity to explore and learn about different countries, their people, and their customs. They will be entertained by fascinating stories from various regions and engage in creative, accompanying activities that bring these stories to life. Finally, kids will learn how stories are constructed and told for the ages, and how some of the epics we've all come to know originated and evolved over time.

What Parents Are Saying

Ms. Lisa was so fabulous. She knew exactly what to expect from a group of 5 year olds, and kept things moving. Her storytelling was SO good! It kept everyone engaged, including the parents. We all loved her. She came withe everything she needed for the party, and was really good with the kids. All the parents at the party kept commenting on how nice it was to be able to enjoy adult time while she engaged the kids.

Miss Lisa was great with keeping my kids engaged in the crafts, games and reading activities! The crafts were super cute and my kids were so excited to display them afterwards! I love that Miss Lisa never spent too long on any one activity and kept things moving along, which really kept the kids entertained!

Ms Lisa Cole was on time, well prepared and jumped right in with engaging reading activities from session start until finish. My almost six year old daughter’s exact words after the lessons were “I love her.” My heart is happy she’s happy and now eager to do more reading experiences with Lisa!

I spoke with Ms Lisa the day before the event and we were able to coordinate logistics as far as what she needed for the craft areas and the eating area and the dancing area. She arrived before the party and got set up and was able to greet the girls as they came in and get them their wings! She came prepared with a bunch of different activities and was able to mix and match as the party went on based on what the girls were into at the moment. They did some story time, crafts, had a tea with fruit and cookies, and did fairy dances, and built fairy towers. The kids made their own wands and crowns and coloring pages with stickers. Ms Lisa did all the entertaining and everyone had a great time!

It was the cutest experience for my daughter and her friend. They loved every minute of dressing up and learning all about fairies. They had so much fun dancing around and using their imagination to have the funnest fairy experience!

My children had a wonderful time. This was their 3rd Grasshopper experience with the same teacher and they have loved every one of them. She had them engaged the whole time in different crafts including sticker pictures, crafting sea horses, magic sketch drawings, balloon bubbles, and strung beads to make mermaid bracelets. It’s such a good feeling as a mom to come home and hear your kids raving about their experience and so excited to show you all the crafts they made.
