Poop Day (observed)

Saturday, February 3 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Madison Children’s Museum holds our second annual celebration of National Poop Day (observed)!

History of National Poop Day at Madison Children’s Museum:

During our 2016 Polling Place election, kids passed a referendum to celebrate National Poop day at the museum. National Poop Day is a holiday celebrated on the day when municipalities supposedly report the most, how-can-we-say-it-delicately, activity in their sewage systems — the day after the Super Bowl. Poop Day is a fun way to explore an aspect of human life that’s important to our daily health, and which also claims an outsized share of attention in the world of small children.

Highlights (or, depending on one’s perspective, lowlights) of the day will include:

Everybody Poops Wildernest Story Time
Enjoy a reading of the international bestseller Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi to kick off the day at 10 a.m.
