Hide and Seek of the Week

This week’s collections object is a set of Crandall’s Masquerade Blocks! Created by Charles M. Crandall, this comical set of eight blocks allows children to create 300 different combinations of characters!

Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! And while you are looking high and low, don’t forget to encourage curiosity by asking open-ended questions and engaging your child in the conversation. For example: What costume would you wear to a masquerade ball? Or go home and see what silly costume combinations you can find in your closet.

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.
