They Say It's Your Birthday!
Lots of us are celebrating birthdays in ways that are pretty different these days. From driveby celebrations to Zoom birthday candles and singing, to handmade gifts, celebrating birthdays is bringing out some really innovative and fun ideas!
Our newest addition to the Children's Museum campus, MuseumLab, celebrated its first birthday on April 27, 2020. While we can't open our doors and invite you in for a big celebration, we came up with a few creative ways for us all to celebrate. Read on for projects, music and a birthday giveaway contest!
