It's winter in Wisconsin! The frigid air has kept many indoors and left parents wondering what they can do with their little ones.

Traditionally, the fun interactive exhibits at the Children's Museum of Fond du Lac are the solution. This winter, however, the museum is temporarily closed due to the relocation to their future home on 75 W. Scott St. But the opportunity for engaging hands-on learning and creative play continue through the use of their traveling exhibits.

Four exhibits are available for rent on a monthly basis: Mr. Fun E. Bones; Spanish Translation Trees; Pizzeria Frazioni To-Go; and Transportation Station. Each offers a unique theme with specific curriculum connections in the areas of mathematics, social studies, physical education, science, languages and more.

Schools, educators and childcare providers can transform their classrooms into a mini museum with opportunities for new lessons each day. Area businesses can set up an exhibit in their lobbies, offering families and visitors the healthy chance to break from the traditional work day for a bit of creative play.

Exhibit rentals are $250/exhibit per month complete with a variety of instructional activities. Educators, childcare providers, parents, or businesses interested in hosting a museum exhibit may contact the museum.
