Family Days at the World Chess HOF
Ages4-5 years 6-8 years 9-12 years Adults & kids together
Make and Play
Make a chess set of your very own! Using materials ranging from soda bottles to clay, Make and Play is a day to think creatively about the game of chess. Children will leave with a handmade and designed piece or two of their very own, as well as a new perspective on artistic problem solving.
Wear and Share
From medals and trophies to masks and crowns, children will make something they can wear and share proudly. Inspired by our exhibits, and created from a variety of media, everything is unique and personal to the child who made it.
Champions of Chess
Based around our changing history exhibit on the third floor, this theme day will focus on one moment or person in chess history, with a specific craft or activity designed for that day. Children will have fun making connections between art, chess, and the past.
Tell Your Story
Make crafts based upon our exhibitions and shaped by your personality! From journals to banners, children get the chance to create crafts that either represent them or give them the opportunity to represent themselves.
