Explore Dorothea Dix Park - Make a Clay Ornament for Kids
Make an ornament! Working with air dry clay and a variety of stamps and materials, children can create a personalized ornament. Students can take ornaments home at the end of the class and we’ll provide paint sets for use after the ornament has dried.
Ages 5-12. An adult must accompany the child.
This program is provided free of charge to participants due to a generous grant from the Dix Park Conservancy.
