We’re incredibly excited about a long winter break and inviting children, grade 1-6, to and join a series of full-day programming. Come for just one day, or join us for all nine as we explore fun themes around cold weather, traditional games, music, tastes and unique festivities of winter-time and first-of-the-year celebrations from all corners of the globe.
WEEK ONE: IN FROM THE COLD
Monday, Dec. 19th
Cold Case: History’s Unsolved Mysteries. From Roanoke to Amelia Earhart to sea monsters and more, we’ll look at some amazing cases that have gone ice cold.
Tuesday, Dec. 20th
Way up North: If anyone knows something about the cold, it’s the Inuit, Vikings, and northern explorers - or at least the animals of Siberia! We’ll take a fun look at these people, places and things and try to imagine winter in the great white north.
Wednesday, Dec. 21st
The Birth of Cool: History is full of really cool people – from Shakespeare to Houdini. We’ll learn about some of the coolest people who were stars in their day for things as diverse as painting, tightrope walking, escape artistry and more.
Thursday, Dec. 22nd
The Ice and The Snow: As we’ll see with Civil War snowball fights, strange winter sports, and the surprising history of the snowman, people have always made the best of winter weather. We’ll play, learn, and create some winter magic of our own on the last day of this week.
WEEK TWO: HOLIDAYS AROUND THE WORLD
Tuesday, Dec. 27th
North and South America
The Times Square Ball, Yellow Underwear, and a lucky empty suitcase: These are just a few of the stories we’ll experience to understand the varied ways people in our slice of the hemisphere celebrate.
Wednesday, Dec 28th
Europe and Africa
A new year always brings us hope and excitement and it’s no different in Europe or Africa. Both continents boast traditions of foods, decorations, fortunes and unfamiliar customs. We’ll have a blast trying our hands and learning the lands.
Thursday, Dec 29th
Asia and Australia
The people in the eastern hemisphere are the first to celebrate a new year, and they do so with bright colors, fierce dragons, great music, fireworks and more. We’ll head north and south to find the most exciting and unusual celebrations, and try a few out for ourselves.
Friday, Dec 30th
Home for the Holidays
Our region is full of great people and great celebrations. Join us as we explore all sorts of local holiday customs from the past and present.
Monday, January 2nd
