Reminder: In-person Hirshhorn Kids programs will be taking a nap throughout August.
Join us Saturday, July 29 between 10am-1pm for Maker Morning: Summer Celebration. Art Cart will resume its Saturday roll-outs on Sept. 2. Storytime will resume every Wednesday, starting Sept. 5.
Have you ever wanted to fly in the sky? Join us, the National Museum of Natural History, and the National Air and Space Museum to explore nature from a bird’s-eye view at this week’s Storytime. We’ll read Sky Color, by Peter H. Reynolds; look closely at Alma Thomas’s painting Sky Light; and create collaboratively with sky-inspired art-making and play!
Meet in the Museum Lobby on Level One.
Do this at home! Explore color through your senses! Sensory bins are wonderfully versatile for different ages. 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.
At this time, we cannot accommodate groups of 10 or larger at Storytime. Groups are encouraged to participate in Art Cart or Maker Morning. Please contact HMSGeducation@si.edu in advance with your group information.
