Building a Box City: Interactive All-Ages Community Art

We’ll have art and craft supplies of every kind and tons of cardboard — the rest is up to you! What does a city need? Skyscrapers, houses, a library, a school? How about a waterpark or a zoo or even a dinosaur exhibit? Maybe your kids want to grow up to be firefighters, or animal doctors, or archeologists…. so let’s build a fire station, a vet clinic, and a big box of dirt to dig in. Grab a shoebox (provided) and let’s build an amazing city together!  Sunday, May 21, 12 PM – 5 PM.

PNO is a time for kids ages 4-12 to come together for mac & cheese dinner, fun, crafts, games, and a movie, while parents get a few hours to rest, relax, or even have a fun Friday night out!

Kids will be supervised by church staff and volunteers.  All volunteers are members at Grace Lutheran and have had background checks.

This is a FREE event to benefit our Little Kitchen Food Shelf.  Free will donations to LKFS are gladly accepted online or in person, or you may bring a non-perishable food item to the event if you wish.

Please register by Monday, April 3rd.

We will serve dinner starting at 5pm. Kids can also bring their own dinner if they like, or come having already eaten.

There will be games, crafts, and options for story time.  We’ll close the evening with a movie night (G-rated) and end at 8pm.
