Kids and families explore a host of bewitching activity stations during Providence Children’s Museum’s annual hands-on Halloween bash:
- Step into the mad science lab to experiment with ooey-gooey slime, investigate mysterious substances, and learn about conductivity to shed light on some spooky scenes.
- Try imaginative arts and “witch crafts” – make your own pet monster and fashion frightful costumes from repurposed materials.
- Explore eerie environments and send ghostly creatures flying through howling air tubes.
Play ghoulish games galore, including “Witch’s Hat Ring Toss” and “Pin the Grin on the Jack-O-Lantern.”
- Hear spooky stories from Rhode Island’s haunted history, browse Halloween books, and compose your own terrifying tales.
And join a Halloween hunt to search for crazy costumed characters throughout the Museum.
Come in costume and have a blast at the biggest Halloween bash around!
