Earth science will be the focus of this month's Family Days event at the Wyoming State Museum. Children and their families are invited to join the Museum on Saturday, April 6, any time between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

During the event, children will celebrate Earth Day as they explore science using chemical reactions and other natural processes. This month’s make and take activities include creating mini erupting volcanoes, making prints using the sun’s energy, and exploring how water moves through plants by creating colorful carnations!

Now in its sixth year, Family Days is a free program of the Wyoming State Museum, sponsored by Walmart, which provides children and their families with fun and educational opportunities to explore Wyoming’s natural and cultural resources. Family Days is held the first Saturday of the month, October through May, at the Wyoming State Museum. Each month’s program has a different theme and activities are geared towards young children and their families. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

The Wyoming State Museum is located at 2301 Central Avenue in Cheyenne. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Admission to the Museum and all of its education programming is free.
