(at Kidspace Children's Museum)

Grab your parkas and gloves, snow is headed to Pasadena! Kidspace Children’s Museum is bringing a snowy winter once again to Pasadena children on the week after Christmas, when truckloads of real snow – about 60 tons of the cold stuff, to be exact – will be delivered to the museum so that kids who are deprived of the fun of playing in snow – it’s LA, what do you expect? – can experience having a fun White Christmas.

For five whole days, from Wednesday, December 26, to Sunday, December 30, the museum will feature Snow Days with fun activities – including an interactive circus show, a marionette performance, and a live animal show – that are open for kids and their parents. But just being able to play in real snow, making snowballs and snow angels, or building a snow family, could already be half the fun!

Each day features a special performance, such as traditional carols on Wednesday, December 26; Shakti Circus hosting an interactive show on Thursday, December 27; a Christmas tunes sing-along on Friday, December 28; Joe Selph and his beloved puppet characters in a classic marionette show on Saturday, December 29; and a live winter animal show where you can meet a fox, a rabbit, or an owl Sunday, December 30.

Kids can also learn more about the water cycle during “The Snowflake,” an interactive story time at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day. Winter themed crafts and dance parties are available throughout the day, and a cooking decorating demo is available for only a $3 fee.

You may have to break out your mittens, boots and snow hat for your chosen Snow Day at Kidspace, because it’s going to be cold!

Snow Days are open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Entry to Snow Days is included in the museum admission.
