On both days enjoy a meet-and-greet photo opportunity with Tinkerbell on stage at 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm and 2:30pm. Volunteers will assist children in creating enchanting wands in The Muse Art Bar and both days from 10am-2pm guests are invited to create their own fairy wings and participate in fairy-style face painting. On Saturday enjoy sensory play in the fairy flower bins and a special visit from Captain Hook who will pose for photos at 11:30am, 12:30pm and 1:30pm.

“Believing in fairies opens young minds to the magic of nature and the wonderment found in the world around us,” stated Angela Colton, the museum’s Executive Director. “On our annual Fairy Day, that magic is seen on the faces of guests as they meet and pose for pictures with Tinkerbell, who appears to have just flown in on a cloud of pixie dust.”

On Thursday, June 22 at 11:00am and Saturday, June 24 at 11:00am & 1:00pm, visitors are invited to a special Storytime reading of Camilla the Cupcake Fairy by Tim Bugbird. In this delightfully illustrated book, the cupcake fairy is challenged by not being experienced in using her very first wand. However, by keeping at it with the help of her fairy friends, they create the perfect cupcake with their perfect friendship!

The Woodlands Children’s Museum, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was founded out of a desire to meet the community’s proven need for a positive environment where children and their families can learn, play, and make special memories throughout the year. At the museum, fun and learning go hand in hand, whether children are creating art, singing along to a musical performance, or conducting a science experiment. The museum also has made it a priority to bring children multi-ethnic and multicultural experiences that celebrate cultural and global differences and strengthen common bonds. Programs frequently are delivered in partnership with other nonprofit organizations, always with the goal of making a positive difference in the life of a child.
