Summer fun at toy museum — Reading and art is a combination a Pauls Valley attraction is again using to bring in kids for some summer fun.

Over the next trio of Wednesday mornings the Toy and Action Figure Museum in downtown PV will host its summer reading and art program.

A bonus once again is children falling into the right age range will get in free with an adult paying regular price.

New museum director Jodi Wood says the summer activity is looking to get kids together for a little bit of fun combined with some reading activities.

The program is again being sponsored by both the museum and Pauls Valley’s public library.

“Together with the Nora Sparks Library, the Toy and Action Figure Museum wants to encourage our young superheroes to read, do art projects, use their imagination beyond their wildest dreams and know that there is another form of entertainment,” Wood said.

“So with this in mind we hope to have a great turnout with the reading program this summer.”

The dates remaining for the program are the next three Wednesdays — July 10, July 17 and July 24.

Reading is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. with each of the programs set to go until noon.

The reading will be followed each of the days by some type of art activity for the kids.

Children ages 3 to 9 who are participating in the program get in free if they’re accompanied by an adult who pays the regular museum admission price.

With the museum looking forward to its big International Superhero Day early next month, Wood is encouraging kids to come to the reading program dressed as a superhero.

“I personally would love to see the kids put their imaginations out there and show up as their individual superheroes,” Wood said.
