Summer Adventures for Kids: June-August 2019

The Des Plaines History Center announces its annual summer children’s program “Summer Adventures for Kids: Traveling Through Time.” It takes place the second, third, and fourth Wednesday of each month from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. The series kicks off Wednesday, June 12 as we travel to Ancient Egypt! Each activity will feature a lesson about a specific time and place such as ancient Egypt, Rome, and China. The lessons will be accompanied by a craft, art project, or game. This program is designed to invite family participation and discussion on a broad range of historical topics per the History Center’s mission. All children ages 5 to 12 and their families are invited to attend. Due to the generosity of VWF Post 2992, each program is free of charge.
