Flights of Fancy Story Time

"The Incredible Balloon Flight to Dizzying Heights"

June 23, 2020 | 11:00am - 12:00pm
Presented Online

Gather your little ones for story time with the National Air and Space Museum. Museum educator Ann Caspari will read the original story "Three High-Flying Friends," which tells the story of Amelia Earhart, Ruth Nichols, and Louise Thaden who were friends that shared a love of flying. They competed to fly the highest, farthest, and fastest. The Ann will lead a craft to create something special to share with a friend.

We'd love to see your crafts! Share with us on Facebook, Twitter (@airandspace) and Instagram (@airandspacemuseum) using #AirandSpaceAtHome. ------------

In "Flights of Fancy Storytime Online," the National Air and Space Museum offers stories for young children and their families inspired by our collection of air and space objects and historic photos. Educators Ann Caspari and Diane Kidd will tell stories, do sketches, and demonstrate crafts that you can enjoy together at home. New episodes are released every Tuesday at 11 am.
