Rumpus and Yggdrasil Open House Information

Rumpus and Yggdrasil
The Center School Open House that's Open to Everyone 
Saturday, December 7th, 10am-2pm
All activities are FREE

From 10am-2pm Center School classroom teachers will be offering creative and delightful art and hand-crafting projects. All kids, of any age, are welcome in any classroom! Spend time in all the rooms and take home a bag of beautiful hand-made items! 

Come and enjoy:

Process painting
Tissue paper flowers
Murano beading
Glass candle holder decoupage 
Glass magnets
Duct tape wallets and crowns
Paper lanterns

Come explore our interactive, enchanted indoor forest. Yggdrasil is an ash tree from Norse mythology that welcomes us into the 9 magical realms. 

Our Yggdrasil realms are:

Archery (with Amherst Archery Academy!)

Forest Creations: build a fairy house or make a toadstool necklace!

Puppets wandering the forest

Labyrinth to crawl through

Exploratoria: sensory explorations

Hope Tree: hang a hope for the world on this tree

Power Cave: enter this cave, do a "reading" and discover your power animal. Receive a medallion of your power animal and then create a power staff with items that represent you and your power animal.

Transfiguration: face painting, costumes

Photoscape: Have your photo taken by Jo Chattman of Chattman Photography. You will look tiny under our 6 food tall toadstool!

From 10-2 you can buy sweet, savory and warm treats from our cafe. Come for breakfast and stay through lunch!

At 2pm, a drumming circle will start a rhythm and we will drag our Hope Tree to the fire, burn it and send our "hopes for the world" into the chill sky.


Please join us for a rollicking day of creativity and mirth on Saturday, Dec 7th.
