What’s your mom’s favorite flower? Make a beautiful homemade flower (or whole bouquet!) for her this Mother’s Day. Research shows that flowers can help us feel happier, more energized and more compassionate toward others. PEM has published an online guide for making three different types of flowers at home with your kids using tissue paper and other easy to find items! Use the link below for a fun crafting experience at home, or visit the museum to make your own in a drop-in art activity.
Giving the gift of membership to one of your favorite organizations is a perfect way to tell somebody that you want them to share your interests and spend some time together. It's extending a hand of friendship and inviting the recipient to join you in a common experience - not just at the time of giving the gift, but throughout the year and beyond.

Explore the concept of time revealed in specimens specially marked with a 'time piece' located throughout the galleries of the Harvard Museum of Natural History. Find extraterrestrial rocks "as old as time"; look closer at giant clams whose shells, like tree rings, show each year's growth; or seek out fossilized dinosaur footprints crossing through a riverbed over 200 million years ago. Pick up the Time Trails map at the museum front desk, free with museum admission. Great for kids ages 6 and up!
