November Fun Recap

Time flies when you're having fun... and we had SO much fun in the Program Room in the month of November!

Visitors had a chance to create quilt mosaics, which involves cutting pieces of paper into different shapes and designs then pasting them onto multicolored construction paper. We learned a lot about color, shape, and pattern. We also played with crayon and watercolor resists and saw how these two materials interact with each other. It was loads of fun!

And as you know, keeping in touch with friends and family is important, especially during the upcoming holiday season. We learned about the mail system by practicing how to write and address a letter. "Mail Art" and "Holiday Card" activities will continue through December in the Program Room,
so please come visit us and create your own! See you soon!

We're all about learning through play.

Join Pinky, one of Please Touch Museum's resident puppets, on an inside look into all the fun, educational things happening at Philly's Children's Museum. This blog is not just about what we do at the museum, but about the educational philosophy behind why we do what we do.
