Children will especially enjoy meeting Hap, the child-friendly drug dog, and watching as he responds to commands.

The local police department will provide fingerprinting kits for families, and the Township Safety Group will share different safety tips.

A storybook reading of “Cell Phone Sally” will teach children cellphone safety and usage in an emergency.

“This is a great way for children and families to learn age-appropriate safety tips,” Angela Colton, the museum’s executive director, said. “And after the event, we invite everyone to stay and play in the museum.”

Safety Day is scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 24, at the museum located at 4775 W. Panther Creek Drive, Suite 280.

The calendar at The Woodlands Children’s Museum is full of fun activities, as well as a number of workshops for children ages 4 through 8.
