From an extravaganza of hands-on activities and story reading to cool treats, Summer Sundays at the Heard Museum gives kids and families a cool and creative way to spend July Sundays.

Mom and dad or grandpa and grandma can explore the Heard Museum and enjoy the activities for free as well, thanks to support from Target.

Each Sunday from July 1-29, visitors can enjoy kids’ hands-on activities with a different theme each week, cool off with ice cream thanks to Cisco (first-come, first-served; limited to supply on hand) and explore the museum by participating in a scavenger hunt. The Courtyard Café will offer special kids’ and family lunches.

On selected Sundays, a Native American storyteller will entertain with tribal lore and stories. Visit http://www.heard.org/events/summersundays.html for information on days and times.

Also, stop into Books & More, the boutique bookstore and souvenir shop, during Summer Sundays and receive a coupon good for 10 percent off one children’s book.

Kids can enjoy several hands-on activities in addition to the dozens of interactive or make-and-take activities in two of the museum’s galleries: “Every Picture Tells a Story” and “We Are! Arizona’s First People.” They can also participate in a different scavenger hunt in the museum each week.

Museum hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with hands-on activities from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Heard Museum is at 2301 N. Central Ave., Phoenix. For information, call 602-252-8848 or visit heard.org.
