Story Time Tuesday: Cactus Soup

June 18, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Make plans to enjoy Story Time Tuesday, a program that features a read aloud presentation followed by a hands-on activity.

This year, Girl Scout Troop 398 from Pharr is collaborating with the museum on this program. Having learned to sew while earning a previous badge, they practiced their skills by fashioning faux food items from felt. These faux food items will be used during Story Time Tuesday.

The books in the series all have stories that feature food, an integral part of any culture and especially so in the borderlands of South Texas and northeastern Mexico. This program is appropriate for children, ages 1 to 7, accompanied by a parent.

This session will include a book reading, “Cactus Soup” by Eric Kimmel, followed by a felt-play soup party!
