Bring the whole family out for a delightful day of holiday fun! Join us as we look at the celebrations of many of the world's cultures through activities, imaginative crafts, games, and performances. Activities include:
- Live holiday-themed performances by choirs from the St. Francis Lower School and Olmsted Academy South.
- Make a Christmas Pickle – No one is quite sure about the origins of the Christmas Pickle, but everyone agrees it’s funny! Learn the story, then make one to bring the fun home.
- Make a Year of the Rooster Scroll – The year 2017 will be the Year of the Rooster according to the Chinese Zodiac. Though the Chinese New Year doesn’t begin until January 28th, get ready early and create a wall hanging on the traditional lucky red paper.
- Shakespeare-Inspired History in Hand—First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library is leaving today! Bid it farewell by exploring some touchable Tudor-era objects.
- Holidays around the World Scavenger Hunt—You’ve seen the trees, but never like this! Go on a festive scavenger hunt to get a closer look.
- Holiday-themed stories presented by our talented Teaching Artists.
