The Manitoba Museum's new program MUSEUM BABIES is designed for babies aged 6 to 12 months (sitting, but pre-walking stage, though walking babies are welcome to participate!).
This program helps Museum Babies shape their knowledge and understanding of the world through sensory experiences, play, and exploration. We will focus on different themes each Wednesday, interacting with objects from the Museum's handling collection, enjoying hands-on activities, creating take-home crafts, and singing songs and nursery rhymes.
April 25 – PLAY: Museum Babies will explore our collection of historical toys, developing imagination, concentration, self-confidence and sociability skills
May 2 – ANIMALS: A whole new world of wonder will open up as Museum Babies encounter animals from our collection.
May 9 – SOUNDS: Museum Babies will take in information about the world around them experiencing every day sounds and sounds found in nature.
May 16 – COLOURS: Colour will capture the attention of Museum Babies as they discover some of the most treasured, brightly decorated items in our collection.
