We hope you have moo-velous time with Page Turner, Kenny, and their friends and special guests!

SHOW DAY: MYRTLE OVER THE MOON

Kids in the Myrtle Over The Moon adventure

In this original Moooosical Adventure, a “boring bovine” seeks love and fame on MooTube by attempting to jump over the moon using a trampoline, roller skates, and a jetpack. She fails but finally realizes the appreciation she craves was there all along.

A cast of talented kids join Kenny and Page Turner in this tale of farmyard friendship.

CRAFT DAY: COW OVER THE MOON PAPER PLATE SPINNERS

With a couple of paper plates and a few simple supplies, kids can make their own Myrtles or Clydes or (fill in name here!)…

AUTHOR DAY: TAMMI SAUER 

Author Tammi Sauer and two book covers for "The Farm That Mac Built" and "Not Now, Cow"

Tammi Sauer has written 30 picture books with more on the way! In The Farm That Mac Built, the scarecrow from Old Mac Donald’s farm emcees a barnyard theater production that collapses into hilarious chaos in this rollicking rendition of “The House That Jack Built.” And in Not Now, Cow, all of the farm animals are ready for the seasons to change—but not Cow.

MASHUP DAY: CLUCKING CHICKEN CUPS

Time for another egg-cellent craft. Today we’re making chickens out of cups that actually cluck! Who would have thought you can make a cup cluck!?

GUEST DAY: KAMAL BELL FROM SANKOFA FARMS

Kamal Bell on Sankofa Farms

Kamal Bell is not your average farmer. He started the 12-acre Sankofa Farms, in Durham, NC to improve food policy, teach nutritional literacy, and educate kids about agricultural-related professions. Kamal will take us on a virtual tour of Sankofa farms, including their working beehives, and give kids a “taste” of modern farm life.
