Mini Mondays

Our youngest visitors are VIPs on Mondays!

Mondays at the Children’s Museum are very special days. From September – April, join us on Mondays from 10:00AM – 2:00PM for a fun-filled day of stimulating play designed for our youngest visitors, children under 4 years old! We provide tailored crafts to help develop fine motor skills, activities that aid in dramatic play, and/or a special story time at 11:00AM and 1:00PM.

Please see our COVID-19 Guidelines for further details and important information prior to your next visit.

October Activities

Theme: Creature Creations

The month starts with kids creating Spooky Spiders and using gross motor skills to untangle themselves from a web. Next, they will be making Witch Faces and learning about colour-mixing with potions. Pumpkin People will be the next Creature Creation and children will get hands-on with a seed counting game to develop their numerical skills. We end the month with a Friendly Monster craft and a parachute game that will be sure to get them moving!
