November Tips:

1. Rita’s Italian Ice on Henderson Rd. has been remodeled and will now be open during the WINTER! Yay!

2. Empty Bowls is a collaboration between Columbus Recreation and Parks and Mid-Ohio Foodbank where volunteers make handmade bowls and you buy them full of soup for a $10 donation. Your donation provides $100 worth of food and groceries through Mid-Ohio Foodbank, and you get a handmade bowl to keep! Find a location here to lunch for a cause between November 1st and December 2nd!

3. Story Time on the Farm  happens on the second Tuesday of the month (November 10, 2017) at Stratford Ecological Center and includes a story time and a hands-on farm experience. Cost is $5/family.

4. The Wonder Room at Columbus Museum of Art has been remodeled and offers new hands on experiences for kids like weaving and fashion design and is full of newly commissioned artwork!

5. Toddler Theater at The Dublin Community Recreation Center happens this month on November 16th at  10:00 AM. Drop in for $2/kid to sing songs with Miss Marlene about Thanksgiving and food and to dance with Clifford the Big Red Dog!

6. If you’re looking for a way to exercise with your littlest ones, Squats and Tots is an exercise class designed with you in mind! Join in at The Jewish Community Center on Tuesdays at 9:30 AM or the 10:30 AM class at Piccadilly on Saturdays in November and December!

7. The American Museum of Natural History Dinosaur Gallery opens to the public at COSI on November 18, 2017!  This is a permanent exhibit! If you’re a member, you can sign up at the link for special preview dates!
