Bedtime @ the Museum – May

Last night’s “Bedtime @ the Museum” was full of animals with armor, like turtles, lobsters, clams, snails, and even armadillos!  Our story of choice was The Armadillo from Amarillo by Lynne Cherry.

Brittany started by reading in the Explorium to our visitors:

An Armadillo from Amarillo, Texas?

He traveled to San Antonio, Austin, and Lubbock, too!

Now we're going to make our own armored armadillo!

Using sequins as armor, we covered the armadillo with a shiny, hard shell!

Diligently coloring the armadillo

Hmm... where should I put his armor?

What color are armadillos?

Make sure you get all his armor in just the right spot!

Wow, that's one armored armadillo!

Is that a blue armadillo?

Quite a stylish armadillo

And the best part of B@TM? M&M cookies!

We had fun learning all about armored animals while enjoying a yummy bedtime snack.

Bedtime @ the Museum is the 3rd Thursday of every month.  It’s a FREE program for children 8 and under with an accompanying adult.
