Forget the perilous Elmer’s Glue, that sinful substance that stripped the finish off my dining room table after I completed my mobile solar system for the 4th grade astronomy fair. (Needless to say, my little sister was allowed only glue sticks.) This weekend, you can let someone else host the science-project mess if you bring your little craftsmen to Vroman’s Hastings Ranch for a special science event to accompany the reading of the latest Ivy & Bean title, Ivy & Bean What’s the Big Idea. All who join (RSVP is required) will partake in a free mini science activity and will get to take home a completed project—and you don’t have to cover the dining room table with old newspapers.
Ivy & Bean Day at Vroman’s Hastings Ranch
Saturday, November 6, 1 p.m.
3729 E. Foothill Blvd., East Pasadena
