CreativityFactoryOn Friday, Feb. 6, the Terre Haute Children’s Museum and local artist, Becky Hochhalter are teaming up to present Creativity Factory Kids' Night Out – an opportunity for kids to enjoy an evening of fun at the Children’s Museum while their parents enjoy a kid-free night for themselves!

The Creativity Factory programs at the Children’s Museum, which are being introduced thanks to support from Patrick and Janice Board, are designed to combine science, art and lots of hands-on fun. During the program on Feb. 6, which will last from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., children ages  5 and up are invited to join Hochhalter, as she explores the Museum’s February theme, “Fit in February.” Participants will learn about the circulatory system and how their hearts work as they create a Glow-in-the-dark Healthy Heart Mosaic! They’ll even have some time to play in the Museum!
