Spring Schedule Announced For PTAC’s Tower Tots Program
By Tourism Industry Partner
BARTLESVILLE, OK – Price Tower Arts Center is pleased to announce the Spring and Summer 2011 line-up for its Tower Tots program. The children’s story hour is offered every other Tuesday at 10 a.m. inside Frank Lloyd Wright’s only realized skyscraper. Tower Tots is a fun, interactive hour-long museum program that includes a story and craft activity. It is designed for children ages 3-to-6 years old.
“We have so much fun sharing a story and doing craft projects that are often tied to the current exhibition in the museum,” said Cynthia Naylor, education coordinator for Price Tower Arts Center. “We do ask that the children be accompanied by an adult for the program.”
Tower Tots allows the children to experience great art, architecture and design. And, it also gives them an opportunity to interact with other children.
“We also find that many parents enjoy the chance to network with other moms and dads while their children are taking part in Tower Tots,” added Naylor.
The spring and summer lineup for Tower Tots is as follows:
• February 8th: Valentine’s Tea Party
• February 22nd: Feather Collages
• March 8th: Origami
• March 22nd: String Painting
• April 5th: Bean Mosaics
• April 19th: Lava Lamp Paperweights
• May 24th: Egg Carton Garden
• June 7th: Kites
• June 21st: Springtime Luau
• July 12th: Paper People Parade
• July 26th: Milk Carton Taxis
• August 9th: Wish You Were Here Postcards

The Tower Tots Program is sponsored by 66 Federal Credit Union. In addition to working with children at Price Tower Arts Center, the program can also go offsite to area daycare and early childhood education programs.
Registration is required for those who wish to participate. To register or to learn more about Tower Tots, please call 918.336.4949 or visit pricetower.org.
