“Little Kids, Big World” November Programs at ND Heritage Center & State Museum
BISMARCK - Toddlers and preschoolers are invited to participate in “Recycled Art” on Nov. 7 at 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. The program will teach toddlers about recycling as they create turkeys using toilet paper rolls and cereal boxes. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The program is part of “Little Kids, Big World,” a free interactive learning series sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota. These fun, hands-on 30-minute programs introduce children to North Dakota’s fascinating history—from dinosaurs through today’s ongoing story.
Additional upcoming programs in the series include “Everything Must Go” on Nov. 14, where participants will discover the things they can’t live without, as they learn how early immigrants had to fit everything in their traveling trunk or leave it behind; and “Frozen in North Dakota” on Nov. 21 where the participants are encouraged to bring their own toys and clothes inspired by the Disney movie “Frozen” to see if and how they relate to items that are display in the museum.
The programs are led by Stephanie Schick, a gallery guide at the ND Heritage Center & State Museum. She is a graduate of Northern Arizona University who previously worked as an educator at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium in Dubuque, Iowa. Schick, who has a passion for history, science, and education, loves to travel and has taught in schools in Kenya and Egypt.
Participants are asked to meet at the east entrance information desk at the ND Heritage Center & State Museum. For more information, contact Erik Holland, 701.328.2792. For more programs sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota, go to history.nd.gov/events.
