CMOM invites families to come by for kid-friendly crafts and workshops and valuable info sessions for parents that are free with museum admission the weekend of September 6–7. On Saturday, kids can get hands-on in the kitchen when they design their own on-the-go snack bags and whip up healthy snacks with help from chef and author, Cricket Azima (2pm). Return on Sunday for a ‘Tips for Tots’ discussion with Stever Metzger, educactor and author of It’s Time for School, who will share strategies on getting the kids ready for the new year (2pm). This event is free, but make sure to get tickets at the Visitor Information Desk on the 1st floor. On both days, youngsters can drop in and get creative decorating book buddies to look like a school house, bus or box of crayons (10am–1pm).
