Toddlers and preschoolers will explore nature through tactile activities and crafts at this special "messy" event. Children, from walking to age 5, will have a blast getting messy while learning to discover the world around them.
Activities include sand exploration, mud and dirt fun, water play, watercolors, face painting, learning how to make nature crafts and more. Children should wear clothes that can get really dirty!
The cost is $8 per child. Parents are free. Special mini-tours of the animal enclosures will be available for $10 per person on Messy Play Day only. There is no charge for the mini-tour for children who are enrolled in the Messy Play Day.
This event is expected to be very popular, so reservations are recommended by calling 636-938-5900. Walk-in enrollment will be based on availability.
Messy Play Day will be held July 29 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Endangered Wolf Center in Eureka.
