March @ KidsPlay

Join us this month at KidsPlay as we play and learn about the wonders of chemistry and concoct something wonderful together.

Chemical reactions are happening all around us and experimenting with them is FUN! Let's learn about the magic of chemistry as we explore with materials and combine them in interesting ways this month. We’ll create colorful art, make a fun toy, and learn how chemistry works in the animal world.
