February Vacation Destination: The Children’s Museum in Easton

caseofpilferedpantrylogo Visit The Children’s Museum in Easton during February vacation for fun all week long.  Help solve “The Case of the Pilfered Pantry”, meet an author, learn about police dogs, make a craft and, of course, explore the Museum’s three floors of hands-on exhibits!  Here’s what the museum has planned:

The Case of the Pilfered Pantry
Monday through Friday from 10am-4pm
Saturday and Sunday from noon-4pm
The Museum’s Kids Kitchen has received a sparkling makeover—new appliances, new counter tops, new dishes and a thoroughly restocked pantry. Or so we thought.  Staffers have recently discovered that a few pantry items are missing! They will surely need your help to solve the mystery… Sleuthers will need to investigate the missing items, search for clues, analyze the evidence, and narrow the list of suspects to help close the Case of the Pilfered Pantry.
