Winter/Spring Mess Makers

This program offers preschoolers and early elementary school children a chance to explore their creativity with and curiosity about natural objects using messy play!



More information

Messy, sensory play is an important part of child development. Together with Ms. Mo and our NDC volunteers, you will explore and create with messy things like dirt, clay, sand, mud, sticks, leaves, and flowers. We will make works of art as well as just good old messy fun with a mix of natural and man-made materials. After we make messes together, you’ll go home clean!

We’ll meet at the Pavilions behind the Center and plan to hold class outdoors.
