February Break Fun
for kids in grades 1 through 5
Bennington Museum is offering three fun-filled afternoons for kids in grades 1 through 5 this February Vacation week.
Each program runs from 1:00 to 4:00 PM and includes all materials and a snack!
Group sizes are limited, and they fill up fast, so reserve your child’s spot now.
Fees for each program are just $18/child for Bennington Museum Members, and $25/child for Not-Yet-Members.
Wednesday February 22: Vermont Know-It-All
You might already know that the state tree is the sugar maple, but can you name the state amphibian or obey the apple pie law? Do you know where to find the spider web farm? You’ll know all this and more as we explore Vermont through activities, stories, and games. Snack today: Apple pie the Vermont way!
Thursday February 23: Picture This!
The first public showing of a motion picture was in 1896, but people were having fun with images for long before that. This workshop will take us from stationary (but still changeable) portraits to moving pictures with lots of fun picture-making activities along the way.
Friday February 24: Art Buffet – Portraits
Are you hungry for some art? Find inspiration in the galleries, then come over to the Art Buffet where you’ll find a variety of materials to satisfy your appetite. Try one of the suggested activities or go free style.
