Museum Program Plans 'Winter Wonderland' Activities for Area Youth

Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert is planning a series of winter-themed activities for parents and toddlers.

A Rancho Mirage museum will host a series of art activities for children this month, and is encouraging parents to help "bring out the holiday glee" through the arts.

The Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert in Rancho Mirage is hosting a "Winter Wonderland" themed program, as a part of their ongoing "Creative Arts for Tots."

The "Tots" program, for parents and toddlers ages 2 through 5, is held every Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., according to museum spokeswoman Cynthia Figueroa.

The next session in the series begins Nov. 21, and runs through Dec. 12.

"'Winter Wonderland' is sure to bring out the holiday glee in everyone as children create turkey hats and finger puppets, make their very own holiday necklaces and ornaments, and decorate glittery snowballs, holiday wreaths, Christmas stockings, and much more," Figueroa said.  "This is a fun and messy time so please dress to get MESSY!"

The program is aimed at encouraging parents to have fun with their children and help spark their young imaginations-- all while getting into the fun messes art can create.

Pre-Registration for the program is preferred and sign-ups are being taken now. The cost for a one four-week session is $30.00 for CDMOD Members and $45 for nonmembers. For those interested in single class drop-in, the cost is $10 for members and $15 for nonmembers.
