Class Experience

Drop your kids at the shop for a day of good old-fashioned making and doing. Each day off is a different art, craft, or DIY theme that will keep your child happy and engaged all day long. We provide loads of creative fun, outdoor playtime, and a safe, supportive atmosphere for exploration.  Register by the day. 10% sibling discount. 

Good to know: 

  • We frequently use real tools, sharp scissors, and low-temp hot glue guns. Safety precautions, talks, and checks are in full effect.
