Bedtime @ The Museum – August

For this month’s Bedtime @ The Museum  we read How Do Dinosaurs Go To School? and made a Triceratops mask.  Since everyone was getting ready to go back to school next week, we thought this was an excellent bedtime book!

How do dinosaurs go to school?

Do they roar out of turn?

No..They help out their classmates and are good listeners!

Decorating a dino mask

Wow! Look at that Triceratops!

Yum, Animal Crackers!

Are you having as much fun as we are learning about dinosaurs??

I love dinosaur coloring pages!!

Making a dinosaur mask is hard work

What color were the dinosaurs?

Look at that dinosaur! Roar!

Look how many horns that dinosaur has!

This bedtime was a ROARIN’ good time! Join us next month for Astronaut Handbook!

Bedtime @ the Museum – July

For this month’s Bedtime @ the Museum we read the Pout-Pout Fish and made a fun set of pouty and kissy lips.  The book was all about a sad fish that wouldn’t cheer up until he got a lovely kiss from another fish in the sea!

First, before we begin the story, it’s very important to get all our wiggles out!

Wiggle-wiggle!

I'm a sad fish... blub, blub, blub

Our audience had some very good listeners

A kiss from a fish was all it took to cheer him up!

Making some pout-pout lips

Thanks, mom! Pretty lips

Mmm... beditme snacks are the best

Using glitter requires great concentration

Family teamwork

Apple juice - yum!

Blub, blub, blub lips

Where's your yummy cookie?

Listening to the story with their new pout-pout lips

This bedtime was full of fishy fun! Join us next month for some more story time fun!

Bedtime @ the Museum – “Baseball”

At this month’s Bedtime @ the Museum we learned all about baseball by reading Alex Rodriguez’s book: Out of the Ballpark.

Everyone gathered around to listen to Jessica read our story…

The batter steps up to the plate...

...and smacks a home run!

Next, we headed back into the classroom to make our own baseball pennants! Kids were given all different materials to use to create a unique pennant about their favorite sports.

What is your pennant going to say?

Which team are you cheering for?

Looks like she's a soccer fan!

Family teamwork!

Even Superman makes pennants!

Go team, go!

Ready to cheer on her team!

Ready for the game!

Rootin' for the orange team!

That is one very spirited pennant!

While working on their pennants, kids are given a bedtime snack, a cookie, and some juice to enjoy. We always have a blast at Bedtime and hope everyone will join us again in July!

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.
