THE WOODLANDS, TX – The Woodlands Children’s Museum will celebrate Texas Independence Day in a big way Saturday, March 2, with activities ranging from live music to photo opportunities with a very, very tall cowboy.
Texas Independence Day honors the adoption of the Texas Declaration of Independence on March 2, 1836. The museum, at 4775 W.

Author Cherie Foster Colburn will read her book, “Bloomin’ Tales: Legends of Seven Favorite Texas Wildflowers,” at 11 a.m. The reading will be followed by a meet-and-greet until 12:30 p.m. when Colburn will sell and sign copies of her book ($20, payable by cash, all major credit cards and checks to Cherie Foster Colburn). Children also will have an opportunity to create plantable bookmarks decorated with wildflower seeds.
Little visitors also can create a special Texas-themed art project in The Muse, the museum’s art bar, and pose for photos with the Tall Texan 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
“Our celebration is an excellent opportunity for families to share Texas’ unique history, to experience the Lone Star State’s dynamic culture and, of course, to have a great deal of fun together,” Executive Director Angela Colton said.

The Woodlands Children’s Museum, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was founded out of a desire to meet the community’s proven need for a positive environment where children and their families can learn, play and make special memories throughout the year. At the museum, fun and learning go hand in hand, whether children are creating art, singing along to a musical performance or conducting a science experiment. The museum also has made it a priority to bring children multi-ethnic and multicultural experiences that celebrate cultural and global differences and strengthen common bonds. Programs frequently are delivered in partnership with other nonprofit organizations, always with the goal of making a positive difference in the life of a child.
