Children can learn about the slimy, fizzy, crawly and construction elements of their favorite subject
The Woodlands Children’s Museum has a number of offerings in January that are sure to appeal to future Isaac Newtons and Marie Curies.

The combination of construction play and reading has been shown to increase children’s physical, cognitive and emotional development while encouraging them to use their creativity, imagination and dexterity. Join the museum for a short story time and then build compatible activities using Lego Duplo blocks and accessories.
“Helping children discover a love for science – in all its forms – is a top priority for us at the museum,” Angela Colton, executive director, said. “We hope families will explore some of these great activities and return week after week for more scientific fun.”
The events are included in the cost of admission which is $6 per adult and child 1 year and older. To learn more about The Woodlands Children’s Museum, visit woodlandschildrensmuseum.org or call 281-465-0955.
