Explore Japan’s seasonal customs and culture through art making based on a different theme each month. From 1–2 pm, preschool-aged children and their caregivers enjoy a playtime picnic and under a fantastical indoor cherry blossom tree and make a magic growing sakura tree to take home. From 2:30–4 pm, a wagashi confectioner leads 6 to 10-year-olds and their families in making their own artistic Japanese sweets inspired by spring.
