Imagination Celebration now has a place in the community called Imagination Space at the Citadel Mall. Just don’t take your children to the mall just to wonder around and shop; take them to explore and bring home a free project or two or three! If your children are not getting art in their schools or they are homeschooled or you just need to get out of the house, Imagination Space is perfect for you.
This is a great place to bring your children to create and explore. Everyday they have free activities that are perfect for children ages two and up. Families can come and create together at a number of their free events. Everyday they offer something new for children to create or learn that stimulate their mind. Their is so much to look at and do at Imagination Space. They are offer spring break camps this week that do have a fee to cover the cost of materials. They do more then just art too. They have story time, science, robotics, threater, and dance.
Their staff is friendly and are always on the ready to offer sugestions or to give a hand. They give the children just enough space and time to work on their projects to allow creativity to flow naturally. Their facility is clean, organized, and spacious. The only thing that would make this place perfect is if they had more information available online that is clear and easy to find and follow.
