Personalized Pizza Garden
Dean Martin said it best, “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore”! That is just what the Lil’ Sprouts “Chefs” will love about this class. Yep, our Lil’ Sprouts will don their Chefs Hats to plant up a garden herb pizza pie. This class is sure to be love at first bite!

Spilled Paint Flower Pot
Don’t cry over “spilled” paint in this class. The Sprouts will purposely spill paint all-over their upside-down terra cotta clay pot to make this one of a kind creation. With a little help from gravity and a lot of paint, they will create a cool effect to be loved by all. No paint brushes are required in this class! Now, let’s get to spilling and let the paint do its thang!
