The DoSeum is a place where interactive fun and hands-on learning come together—a place where minds are always at play. During your visit, our exhibits, programs, and classes will encourage young minds to explore the joy of learning through connections to STEM, the arts, and literacy, but curiosity and exploration don't have to end when you leave!
Explore our DIY Activities, Storytimes, and Questions from Kids that were created for you to DO at home and stay connected with your family while keeping minds at play in between your visits!

Shoo Wee! Do you smell that? What is that smell...I think it's that Okapi! What is an Okapi, anyway? Okapis are nearly impossible to observe in the wild and, once discovered, obtained a mythical reputation and gained the name "African unicorn." This book is the first in a series of "ficinformational" books about lesser known animals with weird traits like the okapi. The illustrations are engaging, and the story is just plain fun to read and filled with real facts.
After listening to Shoo Wee Okapi read by Leslie McCrary, it's time for your family to make a stinky poem! This will be a fun activity to do as a family and investigate the smells of household items and create a poem using the smells you've found as similes to describe why things Stink or Don't Stink.
To enter for a chance to win a signed copy of Shoo-Wee-Okapi, post your Stinky Poem activity on Instagram and tag @TheDoSeum. Winner will be announced Friday, July 31st!
