Now offering this NEW Art Play Date in-person! Parents, come join your little artists in multisensory art making activities for both of you to enjoy together. Learn to interact creatively with your little one while helping your child get started in the world of art by exploring color mixing and the color wheel with highly pigmented blocks of melting ice. Did you know that playing with colors actually boosts language skills in young children? Learning to identify and describe colors improves a child's ability to communicate and express themselves while also strengthening math skills through sorting, categorizing and comparing. Our sensory play dates are developed to stimulate your toddler's sense of touch, smell, sight, hearing, and balance while encouraging creativity and exploration in a safe environment. Ok-to-get-messy attire suggested; aprons provided.
