On Saturday my sister and I took her son for his first visit to the sugarbush at the local nature center. We wore our snowshoes and moved through the 6 stations at a pace perhaps not ideal for a 3 year old but one dictated by the older volunteers providing the interpretive programming. He did wonderfully, both with the snowshoes and with the slow pace. He even correctly identified the real maple syrup in the taste test at the end and was also quite taken with the maple candy. Of course.
