4. Love Letter Boxing
Tuesday, February 13th at 4:30 - Ready to go on a fun letterboxing puzzle scavenger hunt? We will start our journey by making our own journals and stamps, which will be used to practice solving different types of puzzles that will be used as clues. After some practice, your letterboxing skills will be put to the test against an indoor and outdoor course to find clues to find the stamp that marks the end. BONUS: If you are in Girl Scouts, this program will satisfy requirements for a Brownie's Letterboxing Badge!!!

5. Oxford Kids Night Wednesday at Leo's!
