The Christmas Holiday will NOT be stolen by the COVID-19 Grinch this year! Leonardo’s Children’s Museum has drawn out their annual Christmas event over two weekends and its format has changed to protect guests from COVID-19 risks.

Journey to the North Pole will be an hour-long experience for the whole family and only 40 persons will participate in the activities at one time. Guests can sign up for the 9 am, 10 am or 11 am ‘journey.’ There will be four activity stations containing several things to do in each depending on the theme of the station. For instance, the Reindeer Stable will have some of our Critter Clubhouse friends decked out in their best reindeer costumes, guests will make jewelry from antlers and reindeer food for Christmas Eve. The other three stations will be a Gingerbread Kitchen, a Santa Workshop to make an ornament and toy, and lastly a winter wonderland for making snowmen ornaments and doing a science experiment. After proceeding through the stations with the many craft and science activities the highlight of the journey will be visiting Santa! Santa will be in his fancy, full sleigh taking off from this festive event. Santa will visit with children from his sleigh and pose for some great pictures. Families can also help Santa out by writing their wishes on his scroll. Children of all ages will enjoy the event and leave with many treasures.

Persons planning to attend MUST pre-register for a specific hour, as spots are limited and agree to wear a mask or face shield. Members of the museum will only pay $5 per person for their tickets and non-members will pay $10 each. A simple call to the front desk of the museum with a credit card for payment will get your reservation.
