Toddler 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.

October 19- I Can Build Too!

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!

September 21- The Dala Horse

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!
