TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. – The Travis Air Force Base Exchange is helping military children get hands-on with their creativity during in-store Magformers and Play-Doh events to celebrate Month of the Military Child.

Both events will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 14 in the Main Store toy department.

The Play-Doh Make and Take event will help children three and older work on their arts-and-crafts skills by creating colorful sculptures.  

The Magformers Build It Up event is for children five and older who want to tap into their architect skills to create magnetic masterpieces.

“I’m looking forward to seeing all the amazing structures and sculptures created during the Magformers and Play-Doh events,” said Flor Payton, Travis AFB Exchange general manager. “It’s great we’re able to bring our military kids together during Month of the Military Child for these fun experiences.” 

The Magformers Build It Up and Play-Doh Make and Take event are two of several in-store activities planned by the Army & Air Force Exchange Service in celebration of Month of the Military Child, which recognizes the contributions of warfighters’ children to the armed forces community.
