Baby, It's Cold Outside . . .
. . . but it's nice and toasty INSIDE the Delaware Children’s Museum (DCM)! This month we’re exploring the science behind the freezin’ season with interactive, snow-filled programs and a holiday fundraising event that’s overflowing with all things snowy and delightful.
There’s no need for mittens, hats, or layers once inside the DCM, but that doesn’t mean the winter-themed fun can’t travel indoors! On different days, you can investigate the heat-conserving properties of blubber by trying out our very own "Blubber Glove;" explore the different properties of water after it freezes during "Subzero Science;" and learn all about how snowflakes form during "Let it Snow!" with hands-on activities that include using chemistry to craft your own Borax Crystal Snowflake ornament to take home. Don't miss the fun! Check our calendar below for the dates and times of all winter programs.
On the evening of Wednesday, December 17, join us for the DCM's monthly $2 Night, from 5pm-8pm. At 6pm, join us for “Science About the Stories” as we read Pat Hutchins’ book, The Wind Blew, about a very windy day. Following the story, kids can explore the science behind air in different activity stations, including making a paper airplane to take home!
