Your skin. We often call it (affectionately, of course) your birthday suit. It’s your body’s largest organ, weighing in at roughly 8 pounds and covering about 22 square feet. Your skin serves many life-sustaining functions, including protecting you from the outside world and maintaining your body temperature. Each square inch of skin contains millions of nerves that allow you feel touch, pain and pressure.
Summertime means family fun time, and the Missouri History Museum has a full schedule of exciting, free events to enjoy. The Summer Family Fun Series, which will be offered Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays June 5-July 28, includes storytelling, drop-in crafts and a roster of special guests to keep you coming back week after week.
With the hustle of everyday life, keeping a calm, mindful attitude can prove challenging for even the most well-meaning parent. We’re only human, after all. Many parents find themselves asking the question, “am I spending enough time with my kids?”
This spring, the Twilight Tuesdays Edward Jones Concert Series at the Missouri History Museum will entertain audiences in Forest Park. This free, family-friendly music series will take place every Tuesday evening, May 2-June 6, from 6-8 p.m. on the Museum’s north lawn. The Museum will extend hours in the History Clubhouse and offer crafts for kids!
