Day of the Dead Activities
Join us in celebrating Hispanic Heritage month (September 15-October 15) with the Day of the Dead "Experience Box" from the Field Museum. El dia de los muertos, or Day of the Dead, is an important holiday in many Latin American cultures. This holiday centers on remembering deceased family members. Marvel in the vibrant decorations and folk art used to adorn homes and altars during this holiday; infer cultural beliefs about death by looking at the details of masks, rattles, and other decorations; and make a related craft! Ages 4 & up - No registration
Teen Read Week Activity
Feeling adventurous? Stop by the display stand in the teen area and select a book to check out "blindly." All books on the display will be wrapped in brown paper, so you can’t tell what book it is. But each book will have a note on it written by one of your peers telling you what you might like about that book. So pick one, check it out, unwrap it, read it, and enjoy!
