Making Masterpieces: Does your child ever have an occasional “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day?” We invite you to create a Bad Day Sock Puppet for those days your child could use an extra friend to talk to. Puppet therapy has been proven to help children process a wide-range of emotions, to practice communicating how they feel, and to encourage healing. This Making Masterpieces session will include a reading of the book “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” by Judith Viorst.  Museum admission plus $5.00 materials fee per child.

Storytime: Join Ed, our special guest volunteer, as he makes some of his favorite stories come alive!  This program is best for children ages 3-5.  Free with museum admission.
