Kids Craft Classes

We offer six fun Saturday classes for both boys and girls during the Elzinga’s Spring Season. Our classes are designed for little gardeners ages 3 and up.

    • Classes are 30-45 minutes in length and include instruction and supplies. Some parental assistance may be required for younger children.
    • Each class is available for $12.00 per child (24-child limit per class).
    • Each class begins at 11:00 a.m. from Saturday, May 11, through Saturday, June 22. No class on Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 25.
    • You can purchase all six classes at a reduced cost of $60.00 per child in advance.
    • Your child’s class registration is guaranteed once payment is received.
    • Class fees are non-refundable unless the class is cancelled by Elzinga’s.
