Spark your children’s interest in protecting the environment by joining the Bruce Museum online for Digital Family Day: Earth Day to enjoy a variety of fun activities your family can do at home. Environmentally friendly crafts include creating a paper “garden” using recycled materials; using recycled paper to make a ball filled with seeds that you can plant; and fashioning a butterfly feeder, also using recycled materials easily found at home.
Hands-on Earth Day activities with a special Bruce Museum twist include creating your own contemporary/abstract art painting, an art activity led by Education Associate Gabriela Perez and inspired by the recent exhibition “She Sweeps with Many-Colored Brooms”: Paintings and Prints by Emily Mason. Megan Brown, Manager of Youth and Family Services, reads from the children’s book Grandpa’s Too-Good Garden, written and illustrated by renowned New Yorker cartoonist James Stevenson, whose work was recently highlighted in the exhibition Fun / No Fun: Children’s Book Art by James Stevenson.
All Digital Family Day activities and their instructions via text and video will be posted at brucemuseum.org and Live on the Bruce Museum’s Instagram. page starting at 9am.

The Bruce Museum is a regionally based, world-class institution highlighting art, science and natural history in more than a dozen changing exhibitions annually. The permanent galleries feature the natural sciences that encompass regional to global perspectives.
The museum was originally built as a private home in 1853. Robert Moffat Bruce (1822-1909), a wealthy textile merchant and member of the New York Cotton Exchange, bought the house and property in 1858 and deeded them to the Town on Greenwich in 1908.
