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 (and wild) side as they learn about a featured animal, walk through the zoo to see it in its habitat, enjoy a meet-and-greet with an ambassador animal, and create a masterpiece to take home. This class is appropriate 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. One adult is required to accompany each group of up to three children.


  • Parents wanting to participate will be asked to pay the regular class price of $15.
  • Tickets are non-refundable. We reserve the right to cancel this class if there are less than 10 people registered.
