Barnetimen (Children's Hour)

Released on January 19, 2021 | 10:00 a.m.

Location: Online

It’s a snow day, or snødag, during Barnetimen (Children’s Hour). Preschoolers and their caregivers are invited to connect online with Jennifer Kovarik, Vesterheim’s Youth Educator, to explore objects and stories in the museum’s collection and make art inspired by those objects.

A new video will be released on Tuesday, January 19, from 10-10:30 a.m. on Vesterheim’s website here or Facebook page. The video will be available for later viewing on Vesterheim’s YouTube channel.

Discover snowflakes in the museum’s collection, make an indoor-safe “snowball” launcher for year-round winter fun, and create unique snowflake decorations.

Instructions for the make-at-home projects are available here:

Mellon Foundation; with additional support from local sponsors David and Brenda Carlson and Norwegian Mutual Insurance Association.
