Fun for Kids

If you have wanted your kids to get more hands-on experience planting a garden, they can do that here! Let them get their hands in the dirt by planting their own container garden with the Country Garden Club of Northville.

The fun continues with water play in form of making bath bombs with the Great Lakes Natural Soap Company. There will be a variety of kids games, a chance to make beeswax candles, and a craft project put on by the Northville Art House.

There will be face painting, germination bracelet making, a building workshop sponsored by the Home Depot, and a newly designed station about safety where kids learn about animal safety, home safety, and outdoor safety through visiting various stations around the Farm.

Fun for All
