Free Family Day Artist Totes
Families can also pick up a free Family Day Artist Tote at Mia’s Third Avenue entrance March 13-14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. while supplies last. You’ll find materials to try weaving on a cardboard loom, create fuzzy mini sweaters, and weave a mini basket. And also a worksheet to help tell a story about a woman who has inspired you!
The materials in the kit complement the Virtual Family Day program’s activities but are not essential to enjoying the activities.
