Tales for Tots returns to Mazza

Mazza Museum Brings Back Tales for Tots & Funday Sunday with a Twist

Enjoy Tales for Tots and Funday Sunday programs at University of Findlay’s Mazza Museum like never before. This year, Mazza is taking the programs directly to participants through a virtual format.

These programs are free and open to the public. While registration is not required, those who do register for events each month will be entered to win a special gift! Each program session will be recorded and displayed on the Mazza Museum’s website for future viewing. By offering these programs virtually, Mazza hopes to be able to reach, and inspire, more children than ever before through the art of picture books.


Joseph and Judith Conda Tales for Tots, a fun story time tailored to inspire toddlers and preschoolers, will immerse the viewer in a new story on a select Wednesday of each month at 8 a.m. Each interactive, virtual session will include activities, sign language, and songs to go along with the month’s story. This wonderful event series is made possible by an endowment from Joe and Judith Conda.

This season’s Tales for Tots dates and stories are:

  • Oct. 21, 2020 – Where’s My Mummy?
