Thanksgiving Week Activities at The Woodlands Children’s Museum
THE WOODLANDS, TX – The Woodlands Children’s Museum has packed the week of Thanksgiving with live entertainment, from Native American Dancers to magic shows.
The fun begins with performances by the Chikawa Aztec Dancers Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 11:15 a.m., noon and 1:00 p.m. Their performances, to be held in honor of Native American Heritage Month, highlight the Aztec culture.
Tom’s Fun Band will present interactive children’s music with “world-class silliness” Friday, Nov. 29, at 11 a.m., noon, 1 and 1:45 p.m.
Also on Nov. 29, Aileen Kirkham, also known as Captain Book, will bring her special blend of puppetry, songs and humor to the museum at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
Monty the Magician will awe audiences with amazing feats of wonder—and a joke or two—Saturday, Nov. 30, at 10:45 and 11:45 a.m., and 12:45 and 1:45 p.m. Monty’s shows are always a hit with little ones.
“These performances, scheduled to take place before and after Thanksgiving day, will open new worlds to the children who see them,” Executive Director Angela Colton said. “The Chikawa Aztec Dancers help audiences gain insights into a vibrant culture from another time and place. Tom’s Fun Band and Captain Book invite children to use their imaginations and be silly, which are very important parts of childhood. And Monty has a knack for captivating young viewers and bringing the world of magic to life for them.”
All museum activities will take place at 4775 W. Panther Creek Drive, The Woodlands, TX 77381.
Activities during Thanksgiving week are included in the museum’s regular $7 admission price for visitors age 1 and older. The Woodlands Children’s Museum is recommended for ages 7 and under. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
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.
