Animals Get Funky series and programs for kids.

Do you want to inspire creativity, health, and joy?

Do you have children in your life who need healthy outlets, struggle to focus, feel anxious, or seem socially disconnected?   You are not alone.

Children now often lack motivation and opportunities for imaginative play.  With school budget cuts in arts and physical education, it is often up to families to supply creative opportunities.  

Here's where we come in!  We want to support you.

"Rockin' your roll alone is fine, but TOGETHER it's masterpiece time."
