Little Wonders: Museum Fun for Preschoolers

Friday, August 20 at 10:30am to 11:00am

Virtual Event

Learn and play from home—museum style! Preschoolers and their adults can join us online for our popular Little Wonders program, featuring stories, hands-on activities, and more. This month is all about ancient animals. Move like a mammoth, leap like a saber-toothed cat, and learn about other amazing inhabitants from Oregon's deep past. 

Head to Little Wonders Online beginning Friday, August 20 and join the fun! We'll also enjoy a live, virtual story time that morning at 10:30. Preregistration is required for the story time and space is limited to 25 participants. There is no cost to participate.     

Want a little help gathering the materials? We now have Little Wonders activity kits, available for pick-up at the museum starting Thursday, August 19.

Supplies are limited and kits are available on a first- come, first-served basis. Pick up your kit Thursday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.* You can also request to have your kits mailed to you.
