Create, play, and discover this winter with Early Explorers at Portland Children’s Museum. This five-week series will provide young learners and their adults with a unique Museum experience filled with fun. Designed for 2-3 year olds and their caregivers, each hour-long class in the series has a different theme and features play, songs, stories, and movement activities, along with art and science explorations. Early Explorers will create handcrafted treasures to take home, make new friends, and experience the Museum in a whole new way. With 2 times to choose from on either Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays, you can pick a session that works for you!
