Entertaining little ones can take a lot of effort—especially now that so many of us are staying home. Still, flattening the curve doesn’t require us to completely erase our social calendars. You can entertain everyone thanks to Virtual First Saturday Family Day from the Wiregrass Museum of Art. The next session takes place on September 5.
What is the Virtual First Saturday Family Day?
Bonding with your family can create wonderful memories. The goal of the Virtual First Saturday Family Day is to bring everyone together, so that they can appreciate and make new art. It will also help you learn a thing or too as well!
Each month, on the first Saturday, the Wiregrass Museum of Art hosts activities for the whole family to try. The Virtual First Saturday Family Day tends to offer both virtual and crafting activities, so your child will still be able to participate without supplies. In the past, their virtual offerings have included an online gallery scavenger hunt and a book being read aloud. They also have craft activities, like fiber art and creating something based on a favorite song.
What is the Wiregrass Museum of Art?
We may not be traveling right now, but thankfully the Wiregrass Museum of Art is bringing the culture to you. If you ever decide to visit this famous Dothan landmark, they have a wide array of exhibits to explore.
Luckily, they’re allowing a glance at their holdings, even from home. You can see behind-the-scenes footage of their installations here, with videos on Gee’s Bend quilts, folk art, and more.
How do I participate in the Virtual First Saturday Family Day?
You’ll need something important to participate in the Virtual First Saturday Family Day: your computer. The Wiregrass Museum of Art will be holding the next event on September 5, and it will last from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event itself will take place here on their Facebook page.
You can also pencil in several other upcoming dates, too. Have some virtual fun when next installations arrive on October 3, November 7, and December 5. This event is free for all to attend!
Remember, check on the museum’s Facebook page leading up to the event as well, since you may need certain materials to create art.
Tired of hearing young voices telling you just how bored they are? Don’t worry—that’s about to end, at least when the Virtual First Saturday Family Day arrives again.
