Children’s Hour at the Maturango Museum will feature stories and activities about spiders on Flex Friday, Oct. 20 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

What would it be like to walk on eight legs; to make many kinds of webs, some beautiful and some messy looking; and even to spin a silk line to “balloon” through the air from one place to another?

Through the story “The Very Busy Spider” by Eric Carle, other stories, spidery action songs, and a craft, the children will learn about some of these tiny crawly creatures.

Looking ahead to Flex Friday, November 17th, the Docent Story Group is planning a fairytale with a desert twist, “The Gingerbread Cowboy.”

Children’s Hour is a once monthly, September – May, free program for young children and their families.

The fall schedule may be obtained at the Museum or via the website at www.maturango.org.
