Be a Bookworms regular!

To all of our regulars who come to the musuem, and even our first timers. Do you know exactally what Bookworms is all about!? It is one of our all ages art programs, and sure to be fun for the whole family. Bookworms happens every week on Thursday afternoon at 3:30. Bookworms consists of storytime+a craft so it is a 2 for 1 deal! We gather at the Little Orpheum Stage and read a book, and after that the whole group heads over to the Art Smart Studio and we make a craft about the book.

Bookworms of the past:

We read Do you do a Didgeridoo?>and we made paper towel roll Didgeridoos.

We read Danny, the Angry Lion > and we made lion masks.

We read Carry Me> and made rag dolls.

We read James in the House of Aunt Prudence > and we made Rat King crowns.

Next week, July 22nd we will be reading Flight of the DODO and making parachutes to drop from the plane! You really don't want to miss it! So fit us into your CMOM schedules.

See y'all at Bookworms!

Don't forget to check out our daily programs listed on the main page of our website > It will let you know when and what is happening at CMOM. Once you are here just listen for the announcement to know the location of the program.

This months Saturday art will be centered around the heat. Our " July Hot Art" programs will be every Saturday morning at 11am. So be here to make some really hot crafts.

DON'T FORGET! We are still collecting cans to teach children to help others in need. When you bring in a can of food you get a dollar off the price of admission (limit one can per person).
