Prairie Ridge Ecostation
Join Prairie Ridge for a family fun day of winter craft making for all ages – toddlers through adults! From ornament decorating to holiday card making to wreath construction, there is a winter craft for you!
Crafts and activities will be spread out in stations between the Nature PlaySpace picnic tables and the Outdoor Classroom, with activities suitable for all ages of visitors.
Worried about the weather? There will be warm beverages on hand to keep your hands and bodies warm!
This is a free, drop-in program. Come dressed for the weather and prepared to get crafty – there will be paint and other supplies on hand that might result in dirty clothes. Consider bringing a box or bag to help carry your (potentially messy) crafts home with you.
