Expressive Face Play

Best for ages 0-12 months and their grown-ups

Calling all rollers, sitters, dribblers and gigglers for a pint-sized playdate where we’ll explore blobs of color, fuzzy edges, shapes and shadows, scents and touch. Park the stroller and crawl on up for bouncy rhymes, singing, puppets and sensory play that will awaken your baby’s curiosity and create a page for the baby book. Crying and cooing welcome. And don’t let the art disrupt feeding, sleeping or changing schedules; We have a designated, quiet family-friendly classroom for stretching out your visit.

$5 for members. $10/non-member child.
Registration required. Register online using the link / button below, or call 330.376.9186.
