TinkerTown 2019 is coming to Discovery Place Interactive Museum in downtown Texarkana on May 11th from 9 am until 3 pm this year.

Downtown Tinkertown lets you do some "make & take" activities focused on arts, crafts, stem projects, and good old' fashioned tinkering. The event this year is free for everyone thanks to some great Sponsorships including:

  • Ledwell Machinery
  • Patterson Troike Foundation
  • Farmers Bank & Trust
  • Main Street Texarkana,
  • Many committed Activity Presenters

What can you do? Here you go:

  • Jump rope making
  • Pop rocks
  • Lego math
  • Blinky bugs
  • Solar oven smores and more!

Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts alike will also find opportunities to earn badges at some of the locations featured.

The activities aren't just simple spaces where vendors hand out fliers about their products, but children participate in hands-on activities and go home with expanded knowledge, not even realizing they've been learning rather than playing.

Velvet Cool, Board President says;

We'll have activities at Discovery Place where we ask everyone to stop in and get their FREE armband. We'll have 250 tote bags to distribute and we'll get you registered for Door Prizes being given away for prizes such as I-Jump gift cards and movie passes. We'll get you a map to all the activities and then you're off to explore DownTown and tinker around.

Reserve your childs spot through here, TexarkanaMuseums.org/TinkerTown. More information is available through FaceBook.

While not required, these RSVPs help the Museum and Activity Sponsors plan ahead and make sure they have enough supplies for everyone. You can also call 903-793-4831 for more information.
