A one-of-a-kind, science-based activity center is opening Saturday in Town and Country. Kids can spend hours exploring and learning at Myseum in Lamp and Lantern Village.
Myseum is like nothing else in the area and promises hours of fun to kids of all ages. Saturday, Jeff and Jana Deutch of Ellisville are opening the new science-based activity center in Town and Country. Located at 283 Lamp and Lantern Village, Jeff Deutch said they chose the location because it's easily accessible from Route 141, Highway 40, Interstate 44 and the Page Extension. "We love the location," Deutch said. "The concept is elements of an indoor playground, an indoor science center and an indoor children's museum," Deutch tells Patch.

Dozens of children and their parents came out Tuesday for "Dr. Seuss Night" at Julia Goldstein Early Childhood Education Center in University City.
My son was speechless. So, mesmerized by the creature next to him, he wouldn't look straight into the camera, only sideways. Who was it? His grandparents? His dad? Our dog? No! It was the Cat in the Hat. A child's equivalent of a rock star. Dozens of children and their families got up close and personal with the Cat in the Hat on Tuesday night, courtesy of the Julia Goldstein Early Childhood Education Center.

Subterranean Books in University City presents a weekly story time for children.
Parents in University City searching for fun, free events for kids on Thursday mornings need look no further than Story Time at Subterranean Books. Seasoned storyteller Georgy Rock has led Story Time at the Loop's book shop for more than a year now. Inspired by a suggestion from a member of Rock's synagogue, the modern-day maggid—an ordained storyteller of the Jewish faith—approched store owner and founder Kelly Von Plonski with an idea to read stories for young children in the space upstairs. Rock does not request any payment for her services. Story Time runs from 11:30am to noon each Thursday and no two sessions are the same. "She really tailors it to who's there," Von Plonski said. "If it seems to be younger kids, then she'll skew …

The Craft Alliance is offering one week of Art Camps between Christmas and the New Year.
Sometimes the best holiday gifts for kids are not objects but experiences. This winter, the Craft Alliance at 6640 Delmar is offering Art Camps for kids from Monday, Dec. 27 to Friday, Dec. 31. The camp is open to children ages 4 to 15.

"We try to make them fun because…
