Kids are invited to usher in spring and celebrate holidays from a variety of cultures with Children’s Museum of Atlanta. Throughout March, several guests, including Kahaaniya for Kids, Rabbi Glusman from the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta, the Ismali Choir and even the Cat in the Hat, will help little ones learn important lessons about cultural and national holidays.
· Irish Step Dancing
11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
To honor the traditions of Irish heritage, Imaginators will teach families traditional Irish step dancing.
· Find the Four-Leaf Clover
Noon and 3 p.m.
The Children’s Museum of Atlanta’s leprechaun is on the loose with a four-leaf clover! Kids can join the Imaginators to catch the pesky leprechaun and maybe even find a pot of gold.
· St. Patrick’s Day Story Time
Imaginators will read “Clever Tom and the Leprechaun: An Old Irish Story” by Linda Shute, a story about Tom Fitzpatrick who is convinced he struck gold by capturing a leprechaun. However, he quickly learns that the leprechaun may be smarter than himself.
· Science Bar
11 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
To celebrate the Irish holiday, kids will explore colors of the rainbow in a bottle and play with ooey-gooey shamrock slime.
· Art Studio
11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Once little ones capture a leprechaun, they can craft a leprechaun house to keep it in for good luck!
· Build It Lab
Families can utilize real tools and materials to craft a St. Patrick’s Day shamrock stamp.
