October 26th, 2005

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The Florida Museum of Natural History will offer its new preschool program “Wigglers and Walkers” from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Nov. 9 for children ages 2-5. This month’s program is themed “Walk Like an Animal.”

Participants will join Florida Museum docents and staff for child-friendly fun while learning about museum exhibits through crafts, games, stories and other age-appropriate activities. The class will explore how different animals move, varying from a snail with only one foot to a centipede with hundreds of legs.

The cost for each adult and child pair is $3 for Florida Museum members and $4 for non-members. Each additional child is $1. Pre-registration is not required, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Participants should arrive early to park their strollers and meet new friends.
