Messy Art Day for 2-4 year olds

Each year we are so grateful that our friend (and contributor) Wendy tips us off that Messy Art Day is coming soon. When we went in previous years, my kids had a blast even though they were too shy to strip down to their undies and sit in a bathtub of shaving cream, like some of the other attendees.

This year, the event will be Sunday, March 22nd from 10:30 am to 2 pm.

Hosted by the El Cerrito Preschool Co-op, the event is open to the public. Materials on hand will encourage children to explore colors, textures and a variety of media in a safe, fun and messy environment. Bring a set of dry clothes for the ride home!

El Cerrito Preschool Co-op is located at 7200 Moeser Lane  El Cerrito, CA 94530 right by the El Cerrito Community Center.

Messy Art Day is an event for children under 4 and their caregivers. Please no strollers.

    Messy Art Day does not get funding from First 5, nor does practically anyng any more. The school,is footing the bill itself, because it’s such an amazing event!!! Please feel free to donate whatever you feel you kids got out of it! I can assure you an entrance to the BADM is quite comparable!!

    Just a few corrections:
    It is Sunday, March 25 from 10am – 2pm.

    We lost our sponsorship from First Five due to funding cuts, the event is entirely supported by El Cerrito Preschool Co-op and donations! Thank you!
