Santa Monica History Museum Presents Hands on History Workshop for Children

The Santa Monica History Museum is excited to invite children and their families to a free “Hands on History” workshop on Saturday, March 18th from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the Santa Monica History Museum at 1350 7th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90401. The theme of March’s workshop will be Women’s History Month and the history of Girl Scouts. There will be a short, age-appropriate lesson in the galleries followed by a related craft activity.

Girl Scouts are a ubiquitous part of American life, but where did they get their start and how did they grow to one of the nation’s premier women’s organizations with nearly three million active and over fifty-nine million alumnae members?

Join the History Museum as they celebrate Women’s History Month and explore the history of the Girl Scouts. After a lesson in the galleries, participants will move to the museum lobby where they will create a tissue paper ‘campfire’ to take home for future adventures.

Children and their parents are invited to our free Hands on History workshop series held monthly from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Each session includes a history lesson and a correlated craft or activity. Each workshop is designed to be engaging and educational for elementary age (5 – 11 years) children. Topics for the workshops rotate throughout the year to feature relevant, seasonal lessons and activities. RSVP is requested, registration is available at the door. Every workshop is offered free of charge.

Requests for additional information can be directed to Kathryn Evans, Development & Museum Manager at [email protected] or 310.395.2290.
