- Illinois State Museum, Springfield
Why does it get hot during the summer? And why does lemonade taste extra good in the summer? Join us over a weekend to celebrate the amazing Illinois Summer! This virtual event will include engaging art and science activities you can do from home including learning how to make ice cream in a bag, a fun family read-aloud, and getting wet with water activities. In addition to summer activities, fun facts with educational resources you can use to learn more will be shared throughout the weekend. Activities, facts, and resources will be posted our ISM Family Fun website at http://bit.ly/ismfamilyfun. You can participate by responding "going" to the facebook event, https://bit.ly/ILSummerFacebook, or checking the family fun website during the event weekend. From Friday to Sunday, you’ll find new content for your family to enjoy.
Everyone who completes an activity and shares a photo via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or in the Facebook event will be entered in a drawing for a prize from Lincoln’s Little Toy Shop. You can choose one of the recommended activities posted during the event or come up with your own activity. You can post or send your entry through Monday, June 8.* We'll announce the winner and feature our favorite photos on social media after the event.
This virtual event is sponsored by bankwithBOS. Activities will be geared toward elementary age children and their families, but most will be adaptable to other ages.
