If Pets Had Thumbs Day!

Fri. March 3rd @ 11:00-12:00

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if your pet had thumbs? One thing that sets humans apart from many other species on the planet is an opposable thumb. It allows us to do many things that other creatures can't do. What kind of mischief would our pets get into if they could open doors, open containers, or turn on the tv? Join us today as we read a few of our favorite pet books and then we'll create a "thumb-tastic" piece of artwork! Get ready to get your thumbs a bit messy!
- Free event!
- Best for ages 2-4
- Call 731.2665 to reserve a space
