- Dickson Mounds, Lewistown
Adults and their tots will have fun exploring, discovering, and learning on the first Thursday of the month in the Museum’s Discovery Center. Spend quality time with your tot, while each of you makes new friends. A different topic and craft will be featured each month. Registration is not required and admission is free. Participants will enjoy light refreshments. The program begins promptly at 9:30 a.m. with the program portion lasting approximately thirty minutes followed by crafts, snacks, and time to explore the Museum.
On November 7th, the topic will be "Farm Animals” presented by Tara Ricker, owner of Within Walking Distance Homestead, and Karen Messer, owner of Messer Farms, a hobby farm in Little America, Illinois (Fulton Co.). See what kinds of farm animals visit Tot Time! It’s a surprise! Learn about how these animals live, what they eat, and how important they are to farm life.
