May is Museum Month Drop-in Activities

May 25

Each weekend in May, join the museum for a fun, drop-in craft activity to celebrate May is Museum Month and Asian Heritage Month. Children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult caregiver. For ages 3+. 

Weekly themes:

  • May 4-5: Mark the spring migration and create your own articulating Asiatic parrot or magpie. Take a self-guided walk of the local neighbourhood and search for feathered friends using our backyard bird booklet.
  • May 11-12: It’s the season for Sakura (cherry blossoms). Celebrate this beautiful time of year by making your own paper cherry blossoms. Be inspired by the decorative floral objects on display at the museum.
  • May 18-19: Join us for the annual opening weekend of the Oakville’s First Post Office located in Lakeside Park. Learn about postage stamps from across Asia and try letter writing with a Quill Pen. At the museum, try origami – the art of paper folding.
  • May 25-26: Make a Frog Flycatcher inspired by the Victorian ball and cup children’s game.
