- 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.
As part of the Illinois Bicentennial, tots and their caretakers will celebrate President Abraham Lincoln’s 209th birthday with Abe in attendance at the February Tot Time. David Nance of Jacksonville, a retired teacher and Lincoln impersonator, will present a program for children on Lincoln’s wilderness experiences as he travelled the Eighth Judicial Circuit of Illinois. The prairie and wildlife of Illinois will be brought to life as Lincoln spins his tales. Tots and their caretakers may enjoy party games and crafts to take home.
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.
This program series is sponsored by the City of Lewistown, Canton Chamber of Commerce, Havana National Bank, Rusty Melhouse of Edward Jones, and Chris Bennett of Dunfermline.
