Kids Critters and Crafts

Join us at the Zoo for a wildly entertaining morning of crafting for kids with animal
ambassador friends! This program is designed for the budding artistic
naturalist in your family. During these 2-hour classes, kids will get in touch with their
creative side as they learn about a zoo-related topic, walk through the zoo to
see a featured exhibit, enjoy a meet-and-greet with an ambassador animal, and
create a masterpiece to take home. This
class is suggested for kids aged 6 to 11.

All materials for this class are included, and participants will be able to walk away with an awesome craft by the end of the morning.

All tickets include:

  • Craft materials and aprons
  • A visit to a featured animal’s exhibit
  • Up-close photo opportunity with a Zoo animal ambassador.


  • Program Cost: $15/Non-Member Child, $10/Member Child
