September is Preschool Month at AAHOM
I know it is nearly half-way through September, but I wanted to share that September is Preschool Month at the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum. They will have special events geared towards preschoolers during the month.
The Music Lady, Beverly Meyer will be performing on Saturday, September 13 and 27 from 11:30a-1p.
Most preschoolers love animals, so they will love this weekend’s Critters Up Close with the Leslie Science and Nature Center. The critters will be there from 1-4p on both Saturday and Sunday. In addition to meeting the live animals, there will be an animal oriented hands-on activity. LSNC visits AAHOM the second weekend of every month for Critters Up Close. We visited the AAHOM during July’s Critters Up Close. The animal theme for the month was spiders which my daughter got to meet (through their containers) and make a web from yarn and popsicle sticks.
The last two weekends of September will feature Professor Ray with his science shows at 1 and 3p each Saturday and Sunday. The theme for September 20/21 is Mind Over Matter where gases will be turned solid, liquid will expand 700 times creating an explosion, and determining how cold things can really get. The theme for September 27/28 is Good Vibrations exploring strange sounds made from household objects (be warned the kids will learn how to make some of these sounds at home).
The Museum also holds Preschool Storytime every Tuesday from 9-10a and Saturdays from 10:30-11:30a. They will start with a story and then have a fun hands-on activity.
My daughter loves the Hands-On Museum. I love how the museum is constantly changing. We visited in July for the first time in a year and enjoyed the new H2Oh! exhibit and the upgraded blocks in Block Party. I also love the reciprocal museum admission benefits that we get with our membership. We recently visited the Ontario Science Center for free when we were in Toronto.
