Insect activities for families at Brandywine River Museum of Art

07/27/2015 01:58PM ● By J. Chambless

The Brandywine River Museum of Art will celebrate the summer richness of the native plant gardens and the insects that live in them through creative activities, on Aug. 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Families may create butterflies and their host plants, using natural materials to invent their own insect, and add to a large-scale butterfly installation.

 In addition, local author Lisa Moulder McNamara will read her children's book, "The Untold Story of the Eensy Weensy Spider." In this book, the Eensy Weensy Spider has decided to come out from behind the waterspout to tell his tale. Until now, no one except those who witnessed his bravery truly knew how he became so famous. A Chester County native, Lisa McNamara grew up in Unionville. She has worked in the field of education for 25 years, as a teacher, principal, and educational program director. She lives in West Grove with her family.

Admission is free from 9:30 a.m. to noon for this "First Sundays for Families" program. For more information, call 610.388.2700 or visit
