Poppets Playdates: Ages 18 months – 3 years 

Poppets Playdates – a new offering this fall, “poppets” are what the colonial children called their little cloth dolls and what adults lovingly called the children themselves.  This program for toddlers 18 months to 3 years will be a sensory-rich, socialization experience. Offered from 9:30 – 10:00 am on the same days as “M is for Museum”.  Location within the museum will be dependent on the activity.

M is for Museum: Ages 3 years and up

M is for Museum – Wenham Museum educators introduce young children to the world of museums in a fun interactive way, combining early literacy and socialization. Targeted to children 3 years old and up, each session will focus on a particular part of the collection, an exhibit, or a seasonal theme.  Offered from 10:30 – 11:00 am on the second Friday of most months.
