Polar Bear Education Program educates toddlers
Parents and their kids go to a local museum for a fun morning of bonding and education on Tuesday.
A handful of mom's and their toddlers were at the Museum of Arts and Sciences for the Polar Bear Education Program. The program started back up again in February after being on hiatus for a few years.
Kids listened as environment education curator, Amanda DePriest, read a story about the season of fall.
After story time, kids and their mom's made stain glass leaves to go with the theme of the book.
DePriest said the program is geared towards toddlers in order to perk their interest in the museum.
"It's a way to get smaller children involved in things that go on here at the museum,” DePriest said. “We kind of think of the activities here at the museum for older kids and adults, but it's a way to kind of involve the younger kids and give them a reason to come to the museum
The program meets the first Tuesday of every month at 10:30 a.m. DePriest said the theme next month will involve pumpkins for the month of October.
