DIY Haunted Pet Castles

If your pet is anything like ours, they expect to be treated like royalty. Craft your cuddly counts and countesses the (spooky) home they know they deserve! Transform simple cardboard boxes into atmospheric and looming castles for your kitties, bunnies, hamsters, or chihuahuas. We’ll provide the boxes, construction paper, felt, sticks, markers, glue, and scissors (etc.). You are responsible for the masonry, heavy lifting, and imaginative design.

This program is intended for children ages 7 and up and their grown-ups. We ask that adults be responsible for handling any sharp implements, and that participants limit themselves to one castle per family.

Registration is required and will open below on Friday, September 22nd at 9:00 a.m.
