Times: All casting sessions are now full.  

What: This hands-on casting activity takes 1 hour and is limited to 10 children per session.  It is designed for children 3rd grade and up but younger kids can participate with help from an  adult.  A family can share a mold to accommodate more participants.  The end product takes 15 minutes to harden so kids can leave molds and pick up later.
