Critter Christmas

Dec. 9th & 16th 2017 noon-4pm
Santa needs your help! Because there are so many people on the nice list this year, Santa has decided to set up a workshop right here at the Salisbury Zoo! At this workshop you will be helping Santa create over 12 different craft projects to give as gifts, or decorate your home and spread Christmas cheer. You can purchase a passport for $8 and your child will be able to create one of each craft offered or you can choose from the a-la-cart menu.  The craft projects range from $.50-$1.00 each. Each station's craft items are prepacked so if your little one has had all the fun he/she can stand for the afternoon, you can pick up your kits and finish them at home, on  your own.  We do have two free crafts in the mix too. Word is Santa and Mrs. Claus are stopping by to see how operations are going. Children will be able to visit with the Mr. & Mrs. Claus at the Conservation Center during the event. Don’t miss this fun filled opportunity for the whole family to get into the holiday spirit and to create special memories. There will be a craft fair held in conjunction with the workshop. Proceeds from the event benefit the Salisbury Zoo's Education Department. Call 443-944-0636 for more info.
CALLING ALL CRAFTERS  if you are a crafter and have goodies to sell, consider participating in our event.  Registration forms can be found HERE
