First 5 San Bernardino is partnering up with the Robert V. Fullerton Art Museum at Cal State San Bernardino for "Excavating Egypt Family Day." Geared toward children age 0 to five, the event will include a viewing of the Egyptian exhibit from The Petrie Museum in London and a variety of art-themed booths with activities that will be set up in the Museum courtyard.
The event will take place Feb. 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is free.
"There will be fun and games for children of all ages, as well as healthy snacks like apples, raisins and granola bars for snacks," said Bonnie Woodrome of First 5.
Activities include a balloon artist, fact painter, puppet show and a performance from the youth symphony, Symphonie Jeunesse.
Preschool and kindergarten aged children who attend will receive a treasure map that leads to a free art kit and smock. Parking is free for guests who park in Lot "A."
The Egyptian exhibit will have more than 200 objects that portray the daily life and burial customs of the ancient Egyptians. The world's earliest surviving dress, gold mummy masks, a coffin and royal art are among the exhibit's display.
