Hammering Workshop for Kids


CalendarJanuary Events


This is the type of event that I wouldn’t have understood the appeal of before I  had children. However, with plenty of little feet underfoot, I totally get it! At this workshop on January 14, 2017, kids 7 and up will learn about the hammer. Not only will it be a learning opportunity, but also a hands-on, creative one, too! Kids will create nail art to take home while learning how to properly hold a hammer and learning what nails are best for varying jobs. Learn more.

Event Highlight: Save-the-date for Fair Oaks Mall's Family Lunar New Year Festival January 28-29!

The National Building Museum is the perfect place to teach these skills! While The National Building Museum isn’t initially thought of as a kid-friendly destination, DullesMoms.com sees it as one of our area’s hidden treasures, offering many kid-friendly touch-and-play exhibits and opportunities.

Visit the Building Zone, a hands-on introduction to the building arts designed especially for the Museum’s youngest visitors, age 2 to 6. Check out a Family Tool Kit or build an amazing arch. Best of all, visit PLAY WORK BUILD!, an exciting on-going exhibit that takes children and adults alike through an exploration of play with an immersive, hands-on installation featuring molded foam blocks of all shapes and sizes, and an original virtual block play experience.

The National Building Museum is located at 401 F St. NW, Washington, DC 20001. Connect: Online | Facebook | Twitter | (202) 272-2448.
