SUNDAY - Take Creative Flight 10a-6p
No Reservations Required. FLIGHT is the creative theme of the day! Hot air balloons, kites, airplanes, airships and more... The Scrap Exchange will host and incite a creative environment with materials to encourage the children to take delight in their own creative aeronautic artwork; they may venture outside the theme, of course!
Participants have limitless opportunity to create original projects to take home with them. Everyone can create as space & seating is available inside the Artists Tent.
The Scrap Exchange will bring materials and facilitate free creativity and play for participants. Children have the opportunity to construct, explore, and use their imagination as they interact with the materials and each other... lots of fun!
