Summer Fun Days @ the Children's Museum of Tacoma

Children's Arts/Crafts, Museum

While every day at the Children’s Museum is fun and engaging, join us as we celebrate whimsical national holidays, layering a silly invitation to your playful experience. July 18-24 – National Parents Day. We celebrate the parent's or special adults in your life by creating a one of a kind card, designed and printed by you. August 1-7 – International Day of Friendship. Make a play date with a friend to come down to the Children’s Museum and create a friendship necklace in Becka’s Studio. The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011 by the UN General Assembly with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities. September 17-24 – International Dot Day. A favorite children’s book among our staff and beloved by children around the world, The Dot tells the story of Vashti, a girl who begins a journey of self-discovery after her teacher challenges her to make her mark. Join us for International Dot Day, celebrated annually on September 15-ish, as we create collaborative dot inspired artwork, and read the story every hour, and possibly even wear dotted clothes.
