The Build Off kids event comes to Aberdeen!

Kids and their family had a blast at the Build Off Early Learning Fun Fair on October 12th at the Shoppes at Riverside! Children’s imaginations were challenged as they tried to build the tallest structure out of Keva planks in hopes of winning great prizes. After testing their building expertise, kids explored the fun fair for art and science projects, and kids activities presented by a host of community organizations dedicated to early learning.

The Build Off Early Learning Fun Fair was a free community event organized by Child Care Action Council and supported by generous sponsors. A huge thank you to our sponsors for making this free event possible! Our presenting sponsors: Grays Harbor Community Foundation and Quinault Indian Nation.
