Join in this month’s M is for Museum and Poppets Playdates programs OUTSIDE at the Wenham Museum!
With each group, we’ll read Jabari Jumps by Gaia Cornwall. In this book, Jabari is definitely ready to jump off the diving board. He’s finished his swimming lessons and passed his swim test, and he’s a great jumper, so he’s not scared at all. But when his dad squeezes his hand, Jabari squeezes back. He needs to figure out what kind of special jump to do anyway, and he should probably do some stretches before climbing up onto the diving board. In a sweetly appealing tale of overcoming your fears, this book captures a moment between a patient and encouraging father and a determined little boy.
After we read the story, we’ll enjoy some swimming-inspired water play activities! Be ready to get a little bit wet.
The program will take place outside the Wenham Museum on the front lawn. You may want to bring a towel or blanket to sit on for the story portion of the program.
Note: Program registration does not include admission or access to the museum galleries. If you would like to visit the museum after the program, please register for tickets at wenhammuseum.org/visit.
