Second Saturdays are back! Cantigny educators are ready for an afternoon filled with fun and exploration for kids of all ages. We’re celebrating Cantigny Park’s “Alebrijes: Creatures of a Dream World” exhibit with drop-in activities for families. Visit with our educators for hands-on crafts and activities that tie in with the mythical animals inspired by Mexican folklore. Crafts available while supplies last.



  • Scavenger hunt (earns a fun patch!)
  • I spy game
  • Coloring pages
  • Make your own alebrije-inspired creatures
  • Create your own pin while exploring alebrije-inspired camouflage

On the Second Saturday of each month, March through November, Education Department staff presents a drop-in family program. No registration is needed. Locations and themes vary by the season.
