Steam Shovels, Trains, Cable Cars and More!
Presented by Cape Ann Museum at Cape Ann Museum
December 29, 2012
Celebrate local author Virginia Lee Burton with story time, playing and art making in the Children's Activity Center. Create your own winter scene like the one in Katy and the Big Snow with cotton balls and more. Use charcoal pencils to draw a train like the one in Choo Choo. Color and assemble your very own Maybelle the Cable Car using a straw and string. And explore how steam shovels and other construction vehicles work using miniature versions of the real thing.
Join Museum staff for a reading of Burton's works:
