HANDS ON HISTORY

Join us for a fun and informative activity as we craft a shadow puppet theater.

This Month’s theme focuses on arts in Santa Monica.

Saturday, April 25, at 11 AM.

Children and their parents are invited to this free series occurring on select Saturdays from 11 AM to Noon throughout the year. Each session includes a brief, age-appropriate history lesson in the galleries followed by a craft or activity.

Each workshop is engaging and educational for elementary age (5 – 11 years) children. Topics for the workshops rotate to feature seasonal lessons and activities.

RSVP is requested and also available at the door. Each workshop is free of charge.

By creating something hand-made related to history topics, children create memories based on their history lessons. Families can expect a fun-filled learning hour at the Museum!
