Barnetimen (Children's Hour)

Released on March 16, 2021 | 10:00 a.m.


Let’s make a sandwich 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, March 16, at 10:00 a.m. on Vesterheim’s website here or Facebook page. The video will be available for later viewing on Vesterheim’s YouTube channel.

A Norwegian open-face sandwich or smørbrød is an opportunity to eat healthy and get creative. We’ll look for some objects in the museum’s collection that relate to sandwich ingredients, learn a simple way to make butter to spread on a sandwich, share some ideas for ways to make your own smørbrød to eat, and use recyclables to make an artful smørbrød for display

Instructions for the make-at-home art project are available below:

This program is sponsored by the United States Regional Arts Resilience Fund Phase 1, an initiative of Arts Midwest and its peer United States Regional Arts Organizations made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; with additional support from local sponsors David and Brenda Carlson and Norwegian Mutual Insurance Association.
