The Boston Children's Museum will host a special weekend program called "Won't You Be My Neighbor" March 20 to 22.

Using lessons from both Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, this weekend will focus on kindness, feelings, and community. It promises to be fun weekend of play and learning about the importance of relationships with family, friends, and neighbors.

Children can learn how to make puppets, add to a community mural, and climb on board and ring the bell of an Old Town Trolley.

Here are the program details:
