Virtual Little Wonders: Fascinating Fossils

Friday, October 16

Virtual Event

Learn and play from home—museum style! Preschoolers and their adults can now join us online for our popular Little Wonders program, featuring stories, hands-on activities, and more. This month, we're celebrating National Fossil Day by investigating fascinating fossils. Who studies fossils? Where do you find them? What kinds of fossils are at the museum? Join us to find answers to all of these questions and create your own fossil craft! 

We add new Little Wonders adventures every month, each one including crafts and other interactive fun you can do at home with easy-to-find items. 

Want a little help gathering the materials? We now have Little Wonders activity kits, available for pick-up at the museum starting Wednesday, October 14. Kits are $5 each; MNCH members are entitled to two free kits each month; discounted kits are available to Oregon Trail or other EBT card holders. Supplies are limited and kits are available on a first- come, first-served basis. Pick up your kit Wednesday through Sunday from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m., and while you're here, be sure to check out the amazing fossils on display to get ready for our prehistoric adventure.
