Bugs, Bugs, Bugs (July 29 – August 2 and August 18 – 23)
Daddy is a Doodlebug by Bruce Degen
Buggin’ Out: Did you know insects need homes to keep themselves safe? Become an insect architect, and design and construct an insect condo or garden stone perfect for any garden lover.
Bug Biology: Like ladybugs? Become an entomologist and discover different bugs using scientific tools.
Squiggle and Squirm: Use your body to turn yourself into an imaginative bug. What will your bug do? Crawl, swim, fly, or dig, perhaps? Show us through acting!
Bugs in a Maze: Explore early coding skills. Create a path and use a series of directions to lead adults through a shape map while problem-solving and debugging when encountering “bugs” in the system.
Be a Music Maker (August 4 – 9)
Dooby Dooby Moo by Doreen Cronin
Beautiful Beat: Create colorful designs and patterns to transform everyday materials to musical maracas that you can shake and move to make some wonderful beats and rhythms.
Science of Sound: All music is created through vibrations. Create your own music as we experiment with how different instruments vibrate.
Creative Concert: We are going to grab our imaginary instruments and put on a summer concert. Don’t forget to tune your instruments up.
Freeze Dance: Show us your best dance moves and use your Fabulous Freeze Wizard Wand to blast a force of freeze as we dance to some really cool sounds.
Summer Fun (August 11 – 16)
Froggy Learns to Swim by Jonathan London
Artastic!: Choose from a variety of art kits, each individually prepared in a bag, and create a collage, a woven fabric, or paper strip sculpture. Flexible options will inspire any budding artist.
Sun Science: Take on the role of a scientist and harness the power of the sun as we explore the properties of light.
Imagination Vacation: What do you do for Summer Fun? Let’s show everyone what fun looks like as we use our bodies, voices and imaginations to act it out.
Nature Detective: We are going on a scavenger hunt! Use your observation skills and your viewfinder to find a variety of objects at the Museum.
