Make It Monday

  • Ice Crystal Water Colors (Ages 3+ with caregiver assistance) We all know snow is made out of ice crystals but have you ever really looked at how beautiful they are? Join us as we take a look through a microscope and then make your own simulated ice crystals with this creative water color art project.
  • Recycled Art Ornament (Ages 3+ with caregiver assistance) Watch old, torn books become a family ornament during this art project. Older kids can start their projects from scratch while the younger ones can create something pre-cut.

Toddler Tuesday/Thursday (Ages 0-3)

  • I Think I Can Come enjoy this classic children’s book, The Little Engine That Could, to introduce or reinforce the idea of kindness with your little one.  Then, inspire their own self assurance and creativity while they use car crayon molds to make their own transportation-themed work of art.
  • Cars, Planes, and Trains This is a sorting activity using colorful cars, planes, and trains. Pick up a transportation-themed book, listen to some great (and not annoying) toddler music, and introduce math concepts with colors and shapes.

Whisk It Wednesday (All Ages)

  • Make Play Dough Use ingredients often found around the house to make some Play Dough! Take it for yourself, give as a gift, or use the take-home recipe.

Fun Friday (All Ages)

  • Microwave That Soap! Come learn about how snow is made and then watch the Museum’s Program Team show you what happens when you heat up the air and moisture all around us.
  • Winter Tales December 12 only! Bits & Pieces Puppet Theatre is stopping by to do a one-time-only grand puppet show!
