Winter Wonderland – Early Learners


Written by Molly Strehl, Marketing Assistant.

‘Tis the season at the museum! We’ve got new and exciting ways to incorporate STEAM this winter—and we can’t wait for you to join us.

This winter, inspire your toddler (and the child within you!) in our engaging and hands-on Little Thinkers Club series and Early Learners Workshops. Early exposure to science, technology, engineering, art and math concepts (STEAM) can greatly influence your child’s environment and their development. Jump start their learning with these special interactive, dynamic and super fun learning experiences taught by Thinkery’s early childhood educators.

Little Thinkers Club

Join us in January as we kick off two eight-week-long Little Thinkers Club explorations. On Wednesdays, infuse art and architecture in Art Start: Super Sculptors! We’ll use a variety of different materials like wood, cardboard, paper and found items to create unique works of art. Ages 12–36 months.

On Fridays, discover the wonders of winter, spring, summer, and fall in Namaste & Play: Exploring Seasons. We’ll stretch and move and learn about all four seasons through creative movement and yoga. Ages 24–48 months.

Early Learners Workshops

Don’t have time for a whole series? Check out our Early Learners Workshops—one-time workshops offered on Mondays when Baby Bloomers isn’t happening (AISD holidays).

Science can be silly, too! Team up with your toddler on Monday, January 15 for our Silly Science workshops. Together, we’ll investigate materials that foam, bubble and even change color in this playful workshop. Ages 24–48 months.

Calling all builders—join us Monday, February 19 for Little Builders! Collaborate with your kiddo to build and tinker using your imagination and new materials. Will you build a skyscraper or a funky sculpture? Prototype and test materials to build structures together (and make meaning of a mess, too!). Ages 24–48 months.

Early Learners Workshops and Little Thinkers Club are supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department. Visit Austin at
