Chandler Museum offers spring C-Town Suitcase Club activities for youngest visitors

C-town Suitcase Club at the Chandler MuseumThis spring, the Chandler Museum will host three sessions of its popular C-Town Suitcase Club, a free monthly education program for children three to five years old and their caregivers. The sessions will be held from 10-11 a.m., on March 21, April 18 and May 16, at the Chandler Museum, 300 S. Chandler Village Drive.

The themes for the spring series are Tinkers, Blinkers and Stinkers. During Tinkers, participants will discover historic toys and games and learn what kids did for fun before there were battery operated toys. April’s Blinkers program will feature a variety of looking tools, past and present, for youth to explore sight. In May, participants will try their nose at a variety of scents and smells during Stinkers.

During each of these programs participants will sing, hear stories, and discover objects through guided sensory and tactile activities. Youth will make comparisons between everyday objects from the past and today. Each program includes a special take-home item to remember the activity. No pre-registration is required.

“We have participants that come back month after month because they have so much fun completing the activities,” says Tiffani Egnor, Curator of Education, Chandler Museum. “Parents appreciate the educational aspects of the program and enjoy seeing their kids engaged in history.”
