CMEE Play! Cinnamon Dough Ornaments
10:00am – 10:45am
By combining just a few simple household ingredients, we’ll teach kids how to make their own aromatic ornaments! Children will measure, pour, mix, knead, and finally roll out their newly created dough. Then, using a variety of shapes we have at the Museum, they’ll “cut” out their ornament. This sweet-smelling homemade gift is perfect for teachers, babysitters, and grandparents alike. Please Note: The ornaments will need to be taken home and baked or air dried to completely set. Ages: Families with children, ages 2 – 6. Cost: $15 for members, $25 for non-members (includes admission to the Museum). Space is limited. For reservations, please call the Museum at 631.537.8250 or register online.
Kids Create – Fantastic Figurines With Model Magic
10:00am – 11:00am
Working with Crayola’s Model Magic, kids in this drop-off workshop will create their own colorful fantasy figurines. Come with an idea in mind—a Pegasus, a dinosaur…maybe a robot?—or work with a CMEE educator to create something completely unique! While this workshop doesn’t require previous experience with clay, it does require children work fairly independently. Kids who would prefer a little extra help are welcome to invite their parent or caregiver to join the class. Ages: Children aged 6 – 10. Cost: $10 for members, $15 for non-members (does not include admission to the museum). Space is limited. For reservations, please call the Museum at 631.537.8250 or register online.

Cost: $7 members, $20 non-members (includes admission to the Museum). Space is limited. For reservations, please call the Museum at 631.537.8250 or register online.
