Toronto's Evergreen Brick Works is running a program called 'Sprouts Parent and Tot Play,' which gives children between the ages of two and four an opportunity to explore the outdoors. Designed to immerse children in nature in a fun and safe way, the program helps kids develop a love of the outdoors at an early age.

The Sprouts Parent and Tot Play is an eight week program that is geared towards children ages two to four and their parents or caregiver. The program gives toddlers an opportunity to explore Evergreen's Children's Garden through outdoor play, hands-on crafts and interactions with animal friends. The activities are designed to be engaging for parents and children so that both learn more about food, nature and conservation. In addition to fostering a love of the outdoors, the program can also help children develop their fine and gross motor skills.

The event provides a safe space for parents to explore the great outdoors with their children and learn about conservation in the process.
