Put the holiday rush on hold for one afternoon to remember the true spirit of the season at “Gratitude and Giving,” the 10th annual Peace Around the World event on Dec. 4 from 1:30 to 4:40 p.m. at Penn Museum. There’s plenty for the little ones to do—from craft workshops and storytelling, to dancing and a performance of children’s choral music. The Curio Theatre Company, University City’s newest professional acting troupe, will also present two performances of “The Frog Prince” (right). Best of all, it’s free, so relax and spend some quality time with the family while remembering children around the world, the special focus of this year’s event. —H.A.D.
“Gratitude and Giving” runs from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Penn Museum, 3260 South St. Info: 215-898-4890 or www.musuem.upenn.edu.
