- Illinois State Museum, Springfield
Let’s shake off the spring and jump start the summer with a weekend full of movement art, wacky games, and crazy science! This online event will include activities that can be done at home including painting with bubbles, learning about expanding air by blowing up a bag, and creating your own obstacle course. All activities are meant to get you movin’ and groovin’ from home! In addition to 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 to the Facebook event page and our ISM Family Fun website. You can participate by responding "going" to the Facebook event or checking the Family Fun website during the event weekend. From Friday to Sunday, you’ll find new content for your family to enjoy.
Participating families can enter to win a prize from Licoln’s Little Toy Shop by sharing a photo of a completed event activity via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or in the Facebook event. Families can choose one of the recommended activities posted during the event or a related activity of their own.
