Santa will be strolling Main Street during our outdoor Christmas Market this December 5 from 4-8pm. Bundle up and ring in the holiday season in a small-town and properly-spaced 2020 fashion!

🎅🏼 Santa asked the elves today, “Wouldn’t that be a 🎄Christmas miracle ✨ if our favorite small town could do all their Christmas shopping 🛍 right there in New Market?”
The Head 🧝‍♂️ Elf smiled and said, “Santa, they can! Main Street is having a Christmas market with all the vendors and all their goodies 🍭 🧁 🥖 👗 🧵 🧦 🖼 for all the people to get all their gifts 🎁 in one place! 🎅🏼 Santa, you will be there too!”
Santa grinned and marked his Advent Calendar for DECEMBER 5th, 4-8pm.
Would YOU like to participate?
Calling all vendors, less naught and more nice, to submit a vendor application! Link found in profile👍🏻
See you there! ❤️💚❤️💚

Carpenter I am not and boy do I have an appreciation for it now! Measurement, straight lines, overcoming power tools and getting better as I go. I’ve been plugging away at these and I’m excited about offering them at tomorrow’s Farmer’s Market on Main Street. I even came up with a name: TOP Drop! I’ll be outside the Playhouse from 10am to 2pm.
Seeing as this is my first amateur try, they will sell for and introductory $25 plus tax. Get one now before I reach master status and charge more🤣Even if you have no desire to get one, pop by and say hi!! 🎈xo

What a long, strange trip it’s been- praying for our nation to heal and meaningful change to happen.
We momentarily hit the pause button on re-fresh at TOP, but we’re back at it and wanted to share an update...
we’ve landed on a tentative plan of drop-off summer enrichment in August (if permitted/small groups) We remain on the “closed” list for this stage of phase 2.
Meanwhile, stay tuned for Playhouse Camp Kits available soon! And oh yeah, enjoy the sneak peak inside the new room-to-be🎈xo miss you

It’s no question that the world is an alarming place right now. Iran is saber rattling in the Middle East. China is ascendant. North Korea is a rogue state with nuclear capabilities. The oceans are rising. Rhetoric grows more hateful and more divisive. And of course, the COVID-19 pandemic is sweep...

We had another fun trip to The Original Playhouse Children's Museum Friday and made a cool special display case for our very important Beaker Creature collection 🤖🧪 Thanks as always 💙
Addy Jacobs your girls would love this place💗
Loved my trip to Egypt today !
Just wanted to tell you that we had a great time today with our grand daughter. She wanted to know what time we were picking her up to take her back to the museum tomorrow! LOL! She had a blast!
I love the name of your facility ("The Original Playhouse") as both the young and young-at-heart can learn the most through play. It's a nice metaphor since Planet Earth is the greater "house" we live in and have been entrusted with from above (Heb. 3:4).
Fun times at the playhouse!
Leprechauns are on their way to TOP for some St.Patty’s science and art fun!!! We are going to have a great time hunting for these little guys! Who knows? There might be some surprises along the way...☘️☘️☘️ #StemyStPattysDay #TrickyLeprechauns #TOP
Confetti balloons!! 🎈🎉
Thank you for hosting such a fun New Year’s Eve celebration today!! We had a great time and the kids’ smiles were priceless!! 🤩
Had a great time today! Can’t wait to come back next month!
