Check out our new cooking class for children ages 5-6 years with an accompanying adult! This class will be similar in structure/content to Zoo Tots Cooking but the activities will be geared towards slightly older kids.
Join your favorite furry, feathery, slimy, and fuzzy animal friends in an exciting, hands-on adventure during which you and your child will make a creative, tasty treat and participate in fun activities. These classes also include stories, activities, zoo exploration, craft and visits from live animals.
Classes last a little over an hour and are held once a month from 2:00-3:15 p.m.
The regular cost to enroll you and your child in a class is $20.00 and includes admission to the Zoo for the day. Blank Park Zoo members enjoy a discounted rate of $10.
Registration and pre-payment are required.
