Created to Grow is inviting their Created to Grow Family to celebrate and give back to their children’s first home. The boys continue to return to Children's Minnesota for their ongoing needs. The projects at the event will include button trees on canvas, owl wall hangings and apple core sculptures and (our favorite) fall apple pie sensory table and pumpkin patch scribble wall!
