Move It! Dig It! Do It! Drive Thru Truck Zoo @ Coral Ridge Mall
Oct 4 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
Drive through our “Truck Zoo” in the Coral Ridge Mall parking lot to check out emergency vehicles, semi trucks, cool cars, and even a hot air balloon! Along the way, we’ll provide fun handouts and activities that you can complete right in your car.
Move it! Dig it! Do it! has always been a special day at The Iowa Children’s Museum, and we’re excited to bring it back (with a few new twists) in 2020. While the event will look a bit different from previous years, this new format also offers new ways for kids to learn, play, and discover!
Admission is FREE for all drive-thru outdoor activities. Admission inside The Iowa Children’s Museum will still require purchasing tickets online to maintain our “new ways of playing.” Visit theicm.org/tickets to learn more.

Stanley Creates: “Fluidity”-inspired paper marbling @ Online (registration required)
Oct 24 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Led by Lauren Linahon, art education masters student, UI College of Education

Stanley Creates is an interactive program for children and teens to learn artmaking techniques using everyday materials. Taking inspiration from the museum’s collection, participants will play with materials to create unique projects at home. Lauren Linahon will demonstrate the process and provide feedback and support to participants as they make their artwork.

In this workshop, participants will learn how to marble paper using materials found at home. Taking inspiration from the exhibition Fluidity, Linahon will guide kids through the process of creating colorful marble patterns on paper. She’ll also give participants ideas for how to use the marbled paper in other projects.

Lauren Linahon is a graduate student in art education. She has led artmaking workshops for United Action for Youth and taught studio sections of the course Create, Imagine, Play: Human Development through Arts at the University of Iowa.

Free. Participation is limited to 15, please register in advance: https://uiowa.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cx6K9IPBqZ7eoxT

After registration, you will receive a welcome letter with a supply list, all of which are common household items.

Video instructions will be available after the event for those who are unable to attend, but would like to make the projects.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the SMA in advance at 319-335-1727.
