On the Fifth Day Before Christmas, SN Gave to Me...

Seasonal Events at Stepping Stones Museum. Keep your children from peeking in the gift closet by taking them to Norwalk's most kid-friendly venue. Featured in December are events highlighting the holidays as well as the home of the icicle, Russia.

Christmas characters Santa, Frosty and the Gingerbread Man will all be on-site for photo ops from Monday the 21st to Wednesday the 23rd. One of the winter superstars will be spreading cheer for twenty minutes each hour for a few hours every day. Click here for a full schedule.

Russia is the destination for the month as part of the museum's Around the World program. Events stretch through the week following Christmas, taking place at 11:30 and 2pm. On Saturday the 26th, there is an opportunity to paint artwork inspired by one of Russia's most famous artists, Marc Chagall. On Sunday the 27th, take advantage of a little language lesson where children will learn Russian words and how to write their own names. On Monday and Tuesday the 28th and 29th, learn about and decorate a Faberge-style Russian egg ($3 fee; limited spots). On Wednesday the 30th, listen to Russian Folk Tales (only 2pm, other readings that day as well).
