Activities

Suncatchers

Make a colorful suncatcher to hang in a window.

Scratch Art

Create beautiful works of art by scratching your own designs into our coated paper boards; as the black coating is scratched away, vivid rainbow colors are revealed.

Paper Cranes for Peace

Help us fold paper cranes for Harvest for Hope, a project that aims to collect 1.5 million cranes in memory of children who died during the Holocaust.

This activity is inspired by Sadako Sasaki, a young girl who folded over 1,000 paper cranes in hopes of recovering from illness caused by the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. One of Sadako’s original cranes is on display now in front of JANM’s Hirasaki National Resource Center.
