Fall is an exciting time of year with the weather changing and we have fall feasts! Join us for a harvest time with Moomin as we read “Moomin and the Golden Leaf” by Tove Jansson. Children will learn about the changing seasons and make their own harvest feast with play food. It will be a yummy and fun time!
Toddler Time is our specially designed program for children ages 2 to 5 years old, where each session helps young minds grow through interactive stories, engaging hands-on activities and social interaction. Toddler Time is a monthly program, every third Tuesday of the Month. Listed below is a schedule of upcoming programs with descriptions. This program is free for members and $5 per child for nonmembers. Please visit our events page to register.
This month at Toddler Time families will get to explore ASHM’s newest exhibit American by Craft: The Furniture of Olof Althin and see the amazing things that can be built from wood. We will read “Harvey the Carpenter” by Swedish children’s author Lars Klinting to get an introduction to basic tools. Children will play with toy tools and even make their own wooden picture frame to take home!
Children who visit the museum love to see our larger than life wooden Dala horse sculpture. This month at Toddler Time children will learn why the Dala horse is an iconic symbol of Sweden. We will read “A Ride on the Red Mare’s Back” by Ursula K. Le Guin, go on a Dala horse hunt through the galleries, play games to build counting and language skills and have pony rides provided by A&P Petting Zoo. Don’t miss this magical adventure!
