FETCH! Science Adventures at Barefoot Books
Children (ages 4+) explore science-themed activities inspired by the popular PBS Kids Go! series FETCH! with Ruff-Ruffman, led by a staff member from The Discovery Museums in Acton.
At Fun with Fables on 5/15, we'll read from The Wise Fool and then create a tool to rescue the moon, which has fallen from the sky, and design a suspension bridge to help a man cross a river! At Shopping with Dad on 5/29, we'll read this fun Barefoot title together and then use materials you could buy while shopping with your Dad, see some chemical reactions and make a fun toy to take home.
Ages 4+. $6 per child ($15 family max.). RSVPs requested to hold your spot.
Featured Barefoot Books titles available at 50% discount to participants.
