With a different theme each week, Child’s Play offers excitement and learning through crafts, stories and games. This program, a collaboration between the Ephraim Historical Foundation and the Ephraim branch of the Door County Library, features a variety of fun topics for kids in 2017.
Child’s Play begins at 10 am on June 29, with “Teddy Rides Again,” where children will learn about Teddy Roosevelt and his namesake, the teddy bear, through a scavenger hunt, stories and activities. This program will be held at the Anderson Barn Museum (3060 Anderson Lane in Ephraim).
On July 6, “Everything Lego” will have exciting Lego-themed races and opportunities for Lego creativity. This program will be held at the Anderson Barn Museum.
“Park and Play in Door County” on July 13 features special guest and author Ann Heyse, who will read her book, Good Morning Door County. Children will learn about Peninsula State Park and learn how to use compasses. This program will be held at the Door County Library – Ephraim Branch (9996 Water Street in Ephraim).
2017 Child’s Play programs end July 20, with “BB-8 Goes to the Pioneer School.” This program features a variety of robots and droids in an unexpected setting: the Ephraim Historical Foundation’s Pioneer Schoolhouse Museum (9988 Moravia Street).
Child’s Play begins at 10 am and ends at 11:15 am, and is designed for children ages 4 and up. Space is limited. To register, visit ephraim.org or call 920.854.9688. Child’s Play is free, but donations are appreciated.
