Moody Gardens Early Stage Program: October ‘Pumpkins for Playtime!’

Moody Gardens “Growing Together” ‘Pumpkins for Playtime!’
Halloween is right around the corner what better way to start your Halloween festivities than by painting pumpkins? See first hand how we provide our animals with fun and exciting objects that stimulate their minds and give them something to explore in order to enhance their everyday lives. After finishing your works of pumpkin art, watch as our biologists place your colorful Halloween pumpkins in our animal enclosures to see how they interact with their new edible decorations! (Paint used in this activity is non-toxic and safe for our animals.)
