Many artists use shapes to create sculptures. Join us and educators from the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum for a read-aloud of The Shape of Me and Other Stuff by Dr. Seuss and an abstract shape scavenger hunt around the Hirshhorn Plaza. Following the read-aloud, we’ll play with our own creations using different shapes.
Meet in the Museum Lobby.
Do this at home! Looking for an alternative to screen time? A formula for sustained play? Meet the tinker tray. Instructions here.
Join Hirshhorn Kids on Wednesdays for a one-of-a-kind storytime experience! Each week offers a fun and fresh theme for our youngest artists and their adults. Get a fun and hands-on introduction to a new artwork each week, and participate in a joyful read-aloud filled with music, stories, and movement. Then, stay and play while your little artist creates. No reservations or tickets required. Nursing caregivers are welcome. Stroller parking is available in the Hirshhorn Lobby. An ASL Interpreter may be requested for this program; two weeks advance notice is appreciated. For a group of ten or more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a program in advance.
