The Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum is proud to partner with Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity to present “Kappas for Kidz.” In February, join us every Sunday at 2pm on Facebook for a read-aloud.

We will kick this off on February 7th with Dr. Marwin Spiller reading the book “I Am Smart, I Am Blessed, I Can Do ANYTHING?” by Alissa Holder & Zulekha Holder-Young, and illustrated by Nneka Myers.

Welcome to HopScotch 2021: “Making” the Best of It!

HopScotch is an annual fundraising event of the Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum. This event supports the PlayHouse’s maker programs, which help children gain the tools and skills they need to be the creators of tomorrow’s world.
This year we are excited to present a virtual event featuring:
· a choice of Illinois beers, whiskey-based cocktail kits, or mocktail kits
· videos of children, families, and adults participating in three amazing maker challenges
· videos demonstrating how to make your very own craft cocktails
· your own maker kit for you and your family to join us in this celebration of making
· a silent auction and a raffle

Real Tools Workshop:Make a Leprechaun Trap!
Mar 13 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Real Tools Workshop:Make a Leprechaun Trap!

Real Tools workshops teach children how to make and how to invent. They show children how to solve problems — and it compels them to find the problems they want to solve.

Sick and tired of pesky leprechauns stealing your gold every St. Patrick’s Day? Come join us at our Virtual Real Tools Maker Workshop to make a leprechaun trap! We can’t guarantee that the trap will work since leprechauns are notoriously tricky to catch, but we will do our best to help you catch them!

Real Tools workshops are $10 per child. PlayHouse Everywhere members receive one free workshop per month per child. Materials are included. Please note, adult help is often required, and we do ask that an adult be available / participating for the duration of the workshop. Registration is required; registration closes the Friday prior to the workshop at noon.

Materials pick up: Friday afternoons from the Noble Center, 1125 W Lake Avenue

Tools may be picked up at the same time; they must be returned within 3 days of the workshop.
