A grand opening takes place on Saturday, October 15, 2011 for a BIG RED DOG named CLIFFORD in the Glazer Children’s Museum’s new Traveling Exhibit Hall! Board the Birdwell Island ferry and journey to the world of Clifford™, America’s beloved big red dog with a big heart to match. See Emily Elizabeth™ and many of the residents of Birdwell Island.
Inspired by Scholastic Entertainment’s top-rated TV show Clifford The Big Red Dog® on PBS KIDS®, the exhibit offers numerous immersive ‘paws-on’ adventures that reinforce ‘Clifford’s Big Ideas’ ten simple tangible life lessons designed to help young children navigate their world: Share, Play Fair, Have Respect, Work Together, Be Responsible, Be Truthful, Be Kind, Believe in Yourself, Be a Good Friend and Help Others. Adventures with Clifford The Big Red Dog will be here through December 31.
Kids can visit a colossal nine-foot tall Clifford with a tail to slide down, just like Emily Elizabeth does on the television show. Children can help fill Clifford’s big dog bowl with bones using a conveyor belt and find ‘bone’-ifide treasures at T-Bone’s Beach. Browse the Norman Bridwell Art Retrospective and see 40 years (that’s 280 dog-years) of artwork and stories by the creator and award-winning author of Clifford The Big Red Dog.
Check back regularly for special weekly events with Clifford!

Pumpkin Fun for your family !
Pumpkin Fun ideas, and the Music Connections'
4th Annual Pumpkin Party !
Saturday, Oct. 8th
I love PUMPKINS, a fun symbol of Fall
and all it's warmth (pumpkin pie)
and humor (jack-o-lanterns).
My favorite Fall pumpkin chant with young children is a lap bounce:
Pumpkin, Pumpkin, sitting on the wall (bounce child on lap)
Pumpkin, Pumpkin, tip and fall, (bounce, then gently let them tip over and fall)
Pumpkin, Pumpkin, rolling down the street, (Roll hands, or roll on floor)
Pumpkin, Pumpkin... Trick or Treat! ( Hide face with hands, then pop out!)
** From "A Year of Celebration..." by Theodosia Sideropolous Spewok (recommended!)
