Holiday Gift Making Kits!
Spread some joy this holiday season with CMNH Gift Making Kits! Our kits include 5 projects that children can make to give as gifts to loved ones, plus a bonus craft for children to make just for fun! Hand made gifts mean so much, and these gift making kits offer some fun science and art projects that are museum favorites. Kits cost $45, and $40 for members. Kits can be ordered here online, and picked up at the museum the week of December 1st. (Please ignore the date and time attached to this event when purchasing online. We will email you a choice of pick-up time slots, which will be in the early evening, and we can also arrange alternative pick-up times if needed. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the kits or kit pick-up.) The holiday gift making kits include materials for one child to participate, though the activities can be shared between siblings of course.
What's in the box?

Age level: These kits work well for ages 3.5 and up to 12, though younger children may need some extra help from a grown-up. Please note that these kits will include small parts such as sequins and gems, and young children will need supervision to complete the activities.
