Kids (ages 7-12) who love the snowy weather will love this event. The focus of this class is the beauty of winter as your child creates his or her very own snowy, evergreen tree banner to take home and enjoy for winters to come. The program includes a peaceful walk along APEC's trails and a cup of hot cocoa with coconut ice cream snowballs. The class is limited to eight participants.
