GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Crack into spring with the Florida Museum of Natural History’s “Wigglers and Walkers” program at 3:30 p.m. March 18 and April 15. “It’s Eggs-cellent” will be a fun-filled, educational afternoon for children ages 2-5.

This season, students will learn about different types of eggs and the animals who lay them. Through arts, crafts and other activities, youngsters will discover reptile/amphibian and birds eggs while exploring the museum. Activities include egg painting, make-your-own turtle and other take-home projects.

The cost per class for each adult and child pair is $4 for Florida Museum members and $5 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.
