Sensory-Friendly Sunsets at the St. Catharines Museum 4:00 pm
Sensory-Friendly Sunsets at the St. Catharines Museum @ St. Catharines Museum
Aug 4 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Join us on the first Tuesday of each month for a family-orientated evening of special sensory-friendly experiences for children and adults with sensory sensitivities in a calming and inclusive environment. In this after-hours program, lighting and sounds in the Museum will be altered to reduce external stimuli and several sensory-friendly activities will be made available for families to engage with on your own terms. Activities include the following: – Hands-on-Heritage: children will be encouraged to touch and match objects made of different materials. – Play Zone: self-directed play area with a variety of tactile toys and activities to choose from. – Quiet Zone: a place to relax and be calm, with blankets, large stuffed animals, and grounding observation activities. This program is open to the public by donation. No registration necessary. Please contact the Museum for more information.

The Poppy Project: Niagara Falls History Museum 1:00 pm
The Poppy Project: Niagara Falls History Museum @ Niagara Falls History Museum
Aug 25 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Poppy Project is a collaborative community ART PROJECT by the Niagara Falls History Museum in conjunction with Stick ‘N Needles Guild. The Museum is inviting you to work on this large scale installation of knit and crochet poppies to drape over the exterior of the Museum for Remembrance Day. Our goal is 2500 poppies by September. The public is asked to create these poppies at home or at the Museum (once it is reopened) at regularly scheduled events throughout 2020. During the current crisis, we would love to see social media posts with you making poppies #nfpoppyproject and tag the Museum. Until the museum reopens, please keep your poppies at home. We will be developing plans for drop off once the museum is back open. Members of the Stick’N Needles Guild will be on hand to help participants with the poppy patterns. Coffee, tea and yarn will be provided at these events, but please bring your own needles or hook if you have them. This event is brought to you by the Niagara Falls History Museum and the Stick’N Needles Guild
