ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Our city’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, and his daughters loved to collect special items on their travels. We’ll learn more about his story when local children’s author and educator, Christy Howard, joins us for a reading of her book “Moffat the Rabbit Meets a General.” We’ll explore some of these special collected items in the museum and then make travel postcards to imagine what you might collect on a journey.
Supplies Needed: Get creative! Use paper, newspapers, magazines, old calendars and more to create your own travel postcard. We encourage families to use whatever supplies you have around the house. Share your final product with us on Facebook or Instagram.
