Fall is right around the corner and with it comes harvest time! Swedes love fresh fruit and this month toddlers will get a hands on experience picking their own. Join us as we read Jamberry by Bruce Degen, pick real apples from our heritage Rambo apple trees, practice counting lingonberries, and drink apple and lingonberry juice!
Toddler Time is our specially designed program for children ages 18 months to 4 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.
Cost: $5 per child or free for Museum Household Members. There is no charge for accompanying caregivers.
Registration is recommended, but not required. Register online or pay at the door.
From folk songs to ABBA and Avicci, Swedish musical artists know how to get us moving! Join us this month as we explore music from Sweden and read Moose Music by Sue Porter. Toddlers and parents alike can dance along while listening to the Midsommar favorite Vi Aro Musikanter, 70’s hit Dancing Queen, and club favorite Wake Me Up by Avicci! We will also explore the operatic music of Jenny Lind in the museum gallery and then Toddlers can make their own music during center time.
Come and experience the wonderful world of fiber arts! This month at Toddler Time preschoolers will explore our new textile exhibits and learn about the meaningful gift given to the Museum in 1938 by the women of Sweden. We will read Wild Rose’s Weaving by Ginger Churchill and practice fine motor skills with our weaving activity centers.
Be sure to join us this month and see the museum decked out in its holiday splendor! Toddlers and families will get into the spirt by learning about fun Swedish holiday traditions such as St. Lucia Day, Pepparkakor, and Jultomte. We will read Lucia Morning in Sweden by Ewa Rydåker and dance to seasonal music! If you’re not already a member, now is the perfect time to join. Museum members attending December’s Toddler Time will receive a double discount in the gift shop the morning of the program!
