The Kid’s Market Zone at the Saturday Ocean Pines Farmers & Artisans Market is experiencing a busy summer, with dozens of children participating each week.
The zone, under the leadership of Marketplace Features Director Janice Curtis, offers free crafting activities, a weekly story time, and face painting.
“We had over 30 children making a crabby crab craft project this past Saturday morning,” Curtis said.
Craft projects are designed to be easy and are often related to the story time book. Mom and dad can join in on the crafting fun or slip away for a few moments of market shopping.
More Kid’s Market Zone volunteers are needed to help assist children assemble their crafts and to oversee other activities. For those that enjoy reading, volunteers are needed for story time, held each Saturday at 10 a.m.
For more information, contact the market at www.oceanpines.org or visit the market this Saturday.
The Ocean Pines Farmers & Artisans Market runs Wednesdays, through Aug. 28, and Saturdays, year-round, at White Horse Park on 235 Ocean Parkway in Ocean Pines. Market hours are 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
