Prepare to spring into a week filled to the brim with giggles, play, and memories that will last a lifetime at Providence Children’s Museum (PCM) during the April school vacation! PCM is rolling out the red carpet with extended hours and an action-packed lineup of activities from April 13th to April 21st, 2024, ensuring every day is a play day!

“Our excitement is off the charts as we gear up for a week bursting with joy for the school break,” exclaims Caroline Payson, Executive Director at PCM. “We’ve got a lineup that’ll make your young ones’ eyes sparkle with delight!”

To start the week of festivities, Trinity Rep will visit PCM for our Cultural Connections program. Dive into different worlds through play, improvisation, and the magic of miming!

Monday heats up with Mad Science of Southern MA & RI bringing the heat (and ice!) with their interactive fire and ice show! From foggy dry ice experiments to bouncing beach balls, it’s an explosion of excitement you won’t want to miss.

But wait, there’s more! On Tuesday, April 16th at 2:30 pm, Rock-a-Baby, the rock stars of children’s music, are ready to get you grooving and moving with a spectacular musical performance that’ll have you singing and dancing all the way home!

And on Wednesday, April 17th at 2:00 pm, cuddle up for a cozy afternoon with bunnies of all shapes and sizes courtesy of Xen’s Critters. It’s bound to be an adorable overload!

On Thursday, April 18, 2024, children will embark on a button-making bonanza, gleefully selecting colors and designs to personalize their creations, a colorful memento of their imaginative adventure.

Get ready for a wild and messy adventure on Friday, April 19, 2024, as we kick off Earth Day celebrations a few days early with the ultimate seed bomb-making extravaganza. Prepare to get your hands dirty and sprinkle a little magic into our environment as we craft seed bombs bursting with life and love for our planet!
