Summer Funraiser

Painting and saving collide at this artistic funraising event where kids (and adults) can express their creative side while supporting Wonder Works, the best little children’s museum.

  • The Summer Funraiser runs July 1, through September 6.
  • Cost $5 per bank
  • Kids choose one of the decorative saving banks, paint it with acrylic paints and start saving money!

The Wonder Works' Summer Funraiser is great way to support the museum through your purchase of a decorative saving bank. It gives your child a chance to explore their creative side while painting their decorative bank, and a chance to explore and learn about money. The proceeds go directly support Wonder Works Children's Museum, and all the great things happening everyday.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to register in advance?
No registration is required, the Wonder Works' Summer funraiser is designed to add to your visit an is run as a drop-in program. Children can spend as much or as little time as they wish painting and then go back to playing and learning in the museum.

When is the Summer Funraiser happening?
This is a Summer Funraiser, and runs July 1, through September 6, and is available to purchase whenever the Art Room is open. The art room opens 30 minutes after the museum opens and closes 30 minutes before the museum closes.

How should I dress?
We use acrylic paints for the banks, so kids may get paint covered. It is water cleanup, but the paint may stain clothing. We do provide full coverage art aprons.

Is my child old enough?
Yes, your child is old enough. 6 month olds can make a handprint or footprint keepsake, toddlers can finger paint and older children can really let their artistic sides out.

Is it really only $5
Everything is included, the bank, paint, and a little guidance. However, you do have to cover admission to the museum.

What do I get to take home with me?
Your bank of course.
