Activities for Pre-K – 5th grade

MLK Day Virtual Activity

While we wish that we could hold an in person event this MLK Day, this year the DHM has created children’s activity for the community to honor the life & legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This activity includes materials for a fun, easy craft to do with your children at home.

STEM Saturday: Build A Bridge Activity

Bridges have been used throughout history to help people move across challenging landscapes, and now its your turn to become an engineer and solve a challenge by building a bridge with items that you have at home! Parents: make sure to select the challenge that matches your child’s grade level.

Online Scavenger Hunts for Kids

Interested in developing research or internet skills for your child while learning Dearborn history along the way? Check out these scavenger hunts! Each will require participants to search the DHM website (and sometimes websites for other local museums) to answer questions about Dearborn. Kids who accept the challenge and email their responses to us at will receive a prize!
