SUMA At Home Create Playdate

Join SUMA for a special storytime and hands-on creative activity in performing arts, visual arts or natural science. Each Create Playdate is about 45-minutes long and is geared toward preschool children (ages 3 to 5) and their parents or guardians. Every book read at Create Playdate is followed by a make-n-take activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family. For this program, SUMA is happy to partner with Cedar Breaks National Monument and artsFUSION.
