SEPTEMBER 2020: MIAMI CHILDREN’S MUSEUM CELEBRATES HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH WITH A MONTH-LONG VIRTUAL PARTY
Sponsored by Florida Dairy Farmers
Miami Children’s Museum is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with a month-long virtual party this September 2020, sponsored by Florida Dairy Farmers! They have curated a wide variety of activities that celebrate Hispanic culture and shed light to the impacts that Hispanic Americans have made in the United States.
Join in on the fun and learn some impressive things about Hispanic culture in the process! Put on your dancing shoes and take some dance lessons with Diana, a MiChiMu Theatre Troupe member, whip out your apron and learn how to make arepas and tostones in special themed cooking classes, learn how to speak like a native with Spanish lessons from the team, make musical instruments, try a sensory craft and etch lines like the Nazca, create beautiful Panamanian molas, and so much more! There will also be special story times featuring books by Hispanic authors, games and art projects. Va a ser muy divertido… It’s going to be a blast!
It’s all happening online at www.miamichildrensmuseum.org! Though temporarily closed to the public, Miami Children’s Museum offers an exciting “Museum at Home” online program that continues to bring all the experiences of the Museum to the safety and comfort of one’s own home.
