Makers Day with Daniel Tiger

Makers Day is all about using our imaginations to build whatever our hearts desire! We will have a wide array of local creators at the museum to help guide and teach your children as they spend the day playing and imagining.

  • Kevin Vanek – An Adjunct Professor and Sculptor from USM’s Department of Art and Design, he will demonstrate how to assemble and polish his creations – things like, handcrafted wooden swords! – and will then teach your child to build something of their very own!
  • Mississippi Forge Council – This statewide blacksmithing group will teach children all about traditional blacksmithing techniques and demonstrate how to shape metal before our very eyes!
  • Fusion Knitters – Members from a local knitting club will be here to teach your child the basics of knitting!
  • It’s Vinyl Y’all – A local print shop will join us to teach children about what goes into making and designing the signs we see in our everyday life!
  • Bricks 4 Kidz – This acclaimed after-school program from Ridgeland is coming to MCM to inspire imaginations through helping your child build unique creations, play games, and have loads of fun using LEGO® bricks.
  • Sew Fun Studios – This studio from Madison is joining us to teach your child the art of sewing and design!

Children will also have the opportunity to hang out and take photos with the real life Daniel Tiger!
