Young learners and their caregivers will have the opportunity to explore new topics each month in an age-appropriate activity. Each session will begin with a story, and participants will then explore the topic with hands on materials. Participation in Saturday Tinker Tots includes admission to the museum, though caregivers and other family members will need to pay if the family chooses to explore the museum after the program.
Ages 3-K. 9 AM – 9:45 AM. $5.60/$7 member/nonmember. Preregistration is required.
