Brrr...It's Cold Outside Register
Join Kim Botelho, our new Director of Education at the Natural Science Museum for her first family program with the Maria Mitchell Association. This program features one of Kim’s original stories, Brrr..It’s Cold Outside, which teaches children how common animals prepare for the cold winter months. Following the story, you will meet one of our education animals and then make a bagel bird feeder to take home for your outdoor feathered friends. If you wish, you can hang it outside the museum instead.
Parents are free-of-charge. Only register your children.
10am - 11am
This program is appropriate for children ages 3-6 years and they must be accompanied by an adult.
