FREE Tinkergarten Summer Trial Classes
Have you tried a FREE Tinkergarten class yet?! Tinkergarten is an outdoor child-enrichment program for children aged 18 months through 8 years (and a caregiver) that allows kids to do what they do best: learn through play! Children today seem to be getting fewer and fewer opportunities to freely explore and direct their own play, especially outdoors–so much so that child-led play seems to be becoming a lost art.  Tinkergarten provides a community of like-minded parents hoping to give their kids some of the childhood experiences that they themselves enjoyed — sensory rich, imaginative, hands-on play that will link learning with a positive emotion and help build life-long lovers of learning!
Tinkergarten Leaders are holding FREE 75 minute trial classes in the month of May and June and paid summer season classes will begin in June!  Because the age range is 18m- 8 years, Tinkergarten classes are perfect for siblings! Check out  for details on free and paid classes close to you!

The posted events are open to all homeschoolers in the St. Louis, MO, area (including St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Lincoln County, Franklin County, and Jefferson County in MO, and Madison County, Monroe County, and St. Clair County in IL, and surrounding regions).
NOTE: Inclusion in this list does not necessarily indicate endorsement by the blog owner. I try to include as many events or classes I know of in the Greater St. Louis area that would be of special interest to homeschoolers. Some of these events come from a distinctively “Christian” perspective, while others are purely “secular” in nature. If you see things that you would not be particularly interested in, just ignore them and look for the things that do appeal to you
