Holiday plants all have special stories to tell – the spices and herbs we cook with and the plants we decorate with.  We’ll explore these stories and their history while creating our own pomander remembering that you are carrying on ancient traditions from all over the world.  And don’t forget about the wish for the bees!

Join the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum to explore their smoky cauldron and mysterious concoctions and make two types of slime! Gooey concoctions are perfect for those wanting to re-live Halloween!

Participating libraries will be shipped all of the necessary supplies to allow their patrons to make slime, live, with the Ann Arbor Museum. Appropriate for K-8 or public library patrons (younger children may need assistance measuring their ingredients).

Prepare for an ooey-gooey time!
