A Visit with the Green Grouch

December 11, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am


 Everyone’s favorite, family friendly Green Grouch is visiting Explore & More for the holidays! The grouch and his sweet friend Cindy will help you build, frost, decorate, and sample gingerbread houses – don’t worry, the grouch’s gym socks, onions, and banana peels are not included. Mr. Grouch will be sharing classic, immersive stories that the whole family will love. Spending time with this boisterous, grouchy, silly pair is always a blast. Hope to see you soon!

For ages 4 and up / December 11th, 10:30 am -11:30 am
$25 per class – child must be accompanied by an adult
