A celebration of all things messy. From mud to finger paint and slime to sand, there will be lots of sensory hands-on play that’s anything but tidy. Dance on a pool of oobleck or help contribute to a collaborative painting project. Blow bubbles, paint your own face, make a mud pie — the choice is yours, just get your hands dirty. This event won’t be neat, but it will be cool! Most messy activities occur in outdoor spaces, weather permitting. Bring a change of clothes or come dressed for messy play, but how messy you get is up to you! Several outdoor exhibits have washing stations or changing areas.
