Hop on over to LICM for a special night at the Children’s Museum on Saturday, March 23. Peter Cottontail will be opening the doors after hours (6-9 p.m.) for a night of fun activities, celebrating iconic symbols of the season – eggs, bunnies and chicks. The evening will also showcase the “egg-cellent” clowning skills of National Circus Project.

Families can start their evening by making a bunny goody bag to hold the colorful eggs children will receive at each themed activity station they visit around the Museum. (Eggs are filled with non-edible treats.) Activities will include the opportunity to make a chick headband and bunny spinner, plant some bunny “bait” (carrots) and take part in egg relay races.

During the evening, children can also learn the art of “pysanka,” the traditional Ukrainian egg painting technique as they apply their own design to a wooden egg. Face painting and cookie decorating will add a colorful splash to Spring EGGstravaganza.

Performers from National Circus Project will join LICM in welcoming spring by sharing their “egg-cellent” clowning, juggling, spinning and balancing skills. Show times are 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. (Additional fee: $4 with EGGstravaganza admission)

Tickets for “Spring EGGstravaganza” can be purchased online at www.licm.org or by calling (516) 224-5802.
