Kids Market Bucks Club:
PRODUCE PAPER BAG GUESSING GAME:
This month’s activity is all about the fresh produce found at market, identifying it, and learning about why it’s important to eat fresh, nutritious foods.
Kids will join in on a fun guessing game aimed at identifying some common (and not so common) produce items. They will then be asked to explore the market further in search of such items, and in the process, learn some fun and interesting information about their chosen food.
Kids are asked to check in at the Kid’s Tent when arriving at market to collect (or fill out a new) passport. They will then be given instructions for the activity.

Special guests and activities today include:

  • Krys Kreations Face Painting & Parties – face painting by donation from 5pm to 7pm.
  • Character Country – a regular vendor of the market, they will be bringing a child-friendly craft for the kiddos to make! Kids pick from 2 stamps and the letters for their initials and Character Country will stamp a piece of leather that will then be strung up as a bracelet!
  • Bremerton YMCA – Kids Yoga activity and summer camp information! Kids yoga demonstrations every half hour starting at 4pm.
