Events at Growing Tree Toys

We know that kids love to come to Growing Tree Toys to see and play with all of the wonderful toys, but they especially love to visit us when we have a fun, in store activity or event. Our wide variety of activities offer kids a chance to show off their creativity, while making cool, imaginative projects to take home or give as gifts. From our much-anticipated summer Kidtivities™ to Children's Day at Arts Festival, we offer children fun crafts and activities that lead to some amazing creations. Best of all, we provide the necessary staff and supplies, so parents can sit back and enjoy watching their creative geniuses get to work!

Kidtivities™ - Class Descriptions

Fabulous Stepping Stones!
Squish, squeeze and smush the stone mixture, then pour and get ready for the creative part. Add a handprint, a name and lots of colorful stones, all in your very own style. Take home a treasure to share or keep!

Join the Kitten Club!
Join in the creative fun of making your very own kitten! Pop fabric into a 3D figure, decide on the pattern, add features, and in just a short time - a kitten to take home of your very own. And no litter box needed...

Welcome to our Science Lab!
Welcome to our laboratory! Explore the wild side of science with snow in summer, energy that passes right through you, Gravity Goo, nails for breakfast and more. Be prepared to BE AMAZED!

Design, Paint & GROW!
Be a part of the summer flower show! Paint your pots in any design style you want – there’s one for class and one to take home. The pots are ready to be planted, compliments welcome! Makes a great gift! NO MESS Tempera Paints!

Shrinkable Creations!
Really, nothing compares to the fun of doing Shrinky-dink art! Create a big design, then watch as it shrinks…in front of your eyes! Make multiple pendants for a necklace or keychain, to wear or to share. This is just so much fun!

Dig it Up! Dino Excavation
This is good, dirty, messy fun! Using the real excavation tool, chip away to find the surprise in the egg! It’s cool, it’s challenging, and that Dino just can’t wait to get OUT! Do one in class and take one home to find a second dino companion.

Tweats for the Birds!
We all love summer treats! Treat the birds in your yard to a beautiful feeder you painted yourself. The Kwik Stix paints are colorful and vibrant, how could the birds resist? The feeder will look great wherever it hangs!

Create a Master-plate!
Imagine seeing your art work every day at dinner! Or, give your grandparents a really special, made-by-you gift. Using paper templates, everyone will draw their own picture (it helps to think ahead on this one). The magic happens when your template is sent away to be transformed into a dish-washer safe keepsake. Remember: Grandparents day is Sept 11, 2016!.
