Upcoming Workshops

Saturday, March 16:  Anansi the Trickster Spider  – 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

In honor of Save a Spider Day (March 16), we will learn all about our favorite trickster spider, other spiders in mythology and folklore, discover why spiders make webs, get up-close and personal with live arachnid friends, and create Anansi-themed masks and costumes so your family can act out the tale at home!

Takeaway: Anansi masks & costume pieces

Saturday, April 6: Mud Pies - 10:30-12:00 pm 

Unleash your inner sculptor as we go outside, discover the perfect ratio of dirt to water, and dig in deep making mud pies!  Find a worm or a roly-poly, build a castle, or make a mud-painting in this fun, messy playtime!

Takeaway: Oreo dirt pudding
