Kids can hone their skills at two perennial childhood favorites, hula hooping and juggling, at the Children's Museum of Easton this month. The back-to-back programming begins with hula hooping at 11 a.m. You can watch a hula hooping performance and participate in a workshop with the Boston Hoop Troop. Not only will kids learn to hula hoop, but they will also learn the importance of teamwork in learning and playing. Then, at 1 p.m., the focus shifts to juggling. You'll see a performance and enjoy a workshop with professionals. Kids will learn to juggle balls, spin plates, and more under the guidance of performer and expert Jeremy Warren, the Youth Programming Coordinator for Building Circus, the Boston Circus Guild's nonprofit branch. Warren recently worked part-time for the National Circus Project teaching children circus skills and helping them develop their own performances. Kids can join just one or both events during this drop-in program. Thurs., July 18, 11 a.m. & 1 p.m. Free with museum admission: $7.50; under one, free. No registration necessary. The Children's Museum in Easton, 9 Sullivan Ave., Easton. www.childrensmuseumineaston.org
