January is preschool month at the museum

| January 3, 2017

COSHOCTON – January is preschool month at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum. Children 2 – 5 years are invited on Tuesday mornings starting Jan. 10 from 10 – 10:40 a.m. to learn more about the world through the museum’s collections. Using the children’s book “A House is a House for Me” as inspiration, we’ll see what makes a house a house. We won’t just be thinking of houses for humans or animals but also for objects such as pennies or toys. Children will see artifacts that “accommodate, store or provide space” for things, sing songs and make a craft. There are rumors that we may even construct a blanket fort or castle.

JHM’s preschool programs are free. Parents and children are welcome to explore the museum on their own for the remaining hour. “A House is a House” is free, thanks to the support of the Coshocton Kiwanis Foundation. Please RSVP for the event. For more information or to RSVP, contact the museum at 740-622-8710 or email [email protected]org.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is located in Historic Roscoe Village, a restored canal-era town sited along the former Ohio and Erie Canal, at 300 N. Whitewoman Street, Coshocton.
