Mini-Museum - FamilyEducation


Children love to collect just about anything, and enjoy sharing their discoveries with others. Help your child create a mini-museum, where she can display her collection.


  • 15 to 20 minutes


  • Low shelf or counter space


  1. Four year olds love to collect just about anything, and sharing discoveries with others engenders a lifelong love of learning. You can help by providing a reachable, central space for the display of whatever your child collects or finds interesting.
  2. Talk about the display and share it with others.


  • Set paper and pencil by the display so family members can leave comments and questions.
  • Bring part of the collection to the dinner table and talk about it while everyone eats.
  • Ask a question about the display that requires research and help the child find the answers.
