There was dancing.
There was hot chocolate.
There was Elsa.
We had an AMAZING time celebrating the holiday spirit with our guests at Story Time with Mrs. Claus! Thank you to everyone who joined us for the event, and special thanks to those that provided feedback so we can make the 2017 Story Time with Mrs. Claus event even better! Read on for the full run-down of the afternoon we spent at the Cincinnati Art Museum!

Story Time with Mrs. Claus
First and foremost, we owe a HUGE thank you to Mrs. Claus for stepping in at the last minute after our regular Mrs. Claus had a significant illness. She had big shoes to fill, and she did a wonderful job!
We had a wonderful group of businesses join us for some holiday fun! Anna and Elsa from Princess Grace Events dazzled the crowd and Songs for Seeds rocked the house! Tippi Toes Dance provided a coloring table and Woolly Llama Pegs brought peg people ornaments for the kids to decorate. Ralph (local dad and creator of Santa’s Sleigh Ride) joined us to let everyone try out their hand at being Santa and delivering presents to cities all over the world on his fun board game. As if that’s not enough, we also had a Candy Cane Scavenger Hunt sponsored by King Arthur’s Court Toys and Holiday Mini Sessions provided by My Inner Circle Photography!
Let’s start with the hot chocolate bar…Wampler Law Firm sponsored these warm, delicious treats! Not only did they sponsor the materials, but Jay Wampler himself served the hot chocolate to everyone. Our friends from Grateful Grahams, Delicious Designs Cookies, and Nothing Bundt Cakes also brought us some goodies to satisfy our sweet tooth.
The Decorations & The Giveaways
Special thanks to The Christmas Ranch for providing decorations and a giveaway of an ornament gift basket! Guests also had a chance to win a Cincinnati Cyclones gift basket and tickets to the Cincinnati Zoo.
You can still catch the Van Gogh: Into the Undergrowth exhibit at the Cincinnati Art Museum through January 8! While you’re there, check out the interactive Van Gogh activities in the Rosenthal Education Center.
