Spirit, the Horse, Barney the Goat, and an Egg Hunt Highlight July Activities at the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum
(June 24, 2020, Commerce, Texas) The month of July will begin with a busy week at the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum. On Wednesday, July 1, animals from the Road Runner Ranch 3R will make an appearance from 10:00 to 11:30. Dressed in their special Fourth of July costumes, Spirit, a miniature horse, and Barney, a very friendly goat, will visit with children. Accompanying them will be chickens and turkeys.
On Friday, July 3, a Fourth of July Egg Hunt will be held at 10:00 in the morning and 1:30 in the afternoon. The traditional Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by Brookshire’s Grocery has become a Fourth of July Egg Hunt. If Easter baskets are packed away, the museum will have Easter buckets for the egg hunt.
The number of participants and visitors to the museum will be limited for both events. Reservations and payment may be made on-line or by calling the Children’s Museum at 903-886-6055. The Children’s Museum will be closed on Saturday, July 4.
Science Thursdays will be offered each of the following weeks in July. Beginning on Thursday, July 9, presentations will be offered each week at 10:00 and 2:00 on topics to include Robotics, Sound, Water, and the Making of Ooze.
