Hop Into Spring At The Museum

Families can enjoy favorite stories and songs brought to life by Nappy’s Puppets on LICM stage.

It’s an Eggstravaganza at the Children’s Museum on Saturday, April 13. Peter Cottontail will be opening the doors after hours (6-9 p.m.) for a night of fun activities, celebrating iconic symbols of the season—eggs, bunnies and chicks. The evening will also showcase the “egg-cellent” puppetry skills of Nappy’s Puppets.

Families can start their evening by making a carrot-themed bag to hold all the crafts they’ll make during the night. Activities will include the opportunity to make a bird’s nest hat, a chick puppet and egg necklace, spring tulips and a tasty treat. Additionally visitors will be able to test their skills in egg relay races, get their face painted and make an edible Bunny Tail at Spring Eggstravaganza. Eggs are hidden throughout the museum’s galleries for keen eyed children to find.
