XOXO Opens at DuPage Children's Museum

Save the date. Mark your calendars. 

A special exhibit that focuses on love and forgiveness opens to the public on October 11! 

The Children's Museum of Pittsburgh shares a traveling exhibit exploring emotions. Though difficult to put emotions in concrete and visual terms, the exhibit includes interactive features that encourage children and families to understand, appreciate, and express the nature of emotions and how we feel them. Here are a few activities this exhibit offers:
  • Hold hands with someone to illuminate a hidden message about love.
  • Write down a loving thought and press it into a token to keep or gift.
  • Work together to balance on a bubble seesaw or connect an infinite puzzle.
  • Explore facial expressions and build using Face Blocks.
  • Draw or write down what makes you angry or sad and crank it through a paper shredder.
  • Hug a soft sculpture that responds with a comforting sound.
Don't miss the special members-only preview that takes place on October 10 and includes:
  • Ribbon cutting & dedication at 6:00 p.m. by Naperville Mayor George Pradel
  • Special Creativity Studio art activity
  • Sweet dessert treats donated by DeEtta’s Bakery
