M is for Museum: Fall Celebration Wenham Museum

M is for Museum programs have been designed to introduce young visitors to museum concepts in a fun interactive setting. On the second Friday of the month at 9:30 and 10:30.

In the Wenham Museum Makery, children will explore their creativity and engineering skills.  

Poppets will build and stack and play with building toys.  

M is for Museum will read Scraps by Lois Ehlert and make a toy from recycled materiels.

Poppets Playdates: Ages 18 months – 3 years 

Poppets Playdates – a new offering this fall, “poppets” are what the colonial children called their little cloth dolls and what adults lovingly called the children themselves.  This program for toddlers 18 months to 3 years will be a sensory-rich, socialization experience. Offered from 9:30 – 10:00 am on the same days as “M is for Museum”.  Location within the museum will be dependent on the activity.

M is for Museum: Ages 3 years and up

M is for Museum – Wenham Museum educators introduce young children to the world of museums in a fun interactive way, combining early literacy and socialization.

(note: November change of date*)
