Family Program: Childhood Toys as Design Inspiration

Oct. 8, 11am–1:30pm & 2:30–5pm.

Introduce the child in your life to beloved retro toys at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Take a whirl with a Spirograph, add to an urban neighborhood made of Legos, and design a new outfit with fashion plates. Contribute your creative designs to our community wall. Fun for the whole family!   

Family Programs are designed for youth ages 5-12 and their adult guardian/caregivers. No registration required, first come, first served. Adults must stay with their youth during the activity and are encouraged to participate. Activity and museum admission are free as part of the museum’s National Design Week.
