Mother's Day

Wonder Works wants to help you celebrate Mom and all the special women in your life by offering great gift ideas, as well as a place for Dad to take the kids to give Mom a much deserved break.

  • The Mother's Day Flower Pot Crafts are part of our Spring Fundraiser.
  • The Mother's Day Cards will take place the week leading up to, and Mother's Day Weekend.
  • Cost $5 - $8 per flowerpot (Mother's Day Cards are free) + general admission to the museum
  • Kids choose one of the ornamental flower pots, paint it with acrylic paints and plant it with their choice of flower.

This is a great opportunity for Dad (or Grandparents) to bring the kids to Wonder Works for a few hours on Mother's Day weekend to give mom a break and bring her a special, one-of-a-kind gift. These special Mother's Day crafts are available while supplies last.
