Local artists Rolando Chang Barrero of ActivistArtistA gallery in the Boynton Beach Arts District, Barbara Lentz of Art-Sea Living and Inge Behrens of Boca Raton will facilitate hands-on workshops with the children.
Barrero, who represents Boynton Beach Art in Public Places, will create a mini, educational puppet theater for the children.
"I am excited about my role in supporting Children & Parents' Day," he said. "It has been one of the most rewarding experiences in the past, and I expect it to be phenomenal this year. And, apples are my favorite fruit."
The children will decorate the puppets and create a story about good nutrition and the importance of incorporating fruit into their daily diet.
