Abstract:Frisky and Blossom are long gone now, and I wouldn't recognize them if they showed up today. But they taught me more about life than many people I've known. They were de-scented skunks who lived at the Fort Worth Children's Museum (now the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History). I met them when my mother enrolled me, as a three-year-old, in the Frisky and Blossom Club held at the Museum. The Frisky and Blossom Club was the first class of what later became the Museum School, now one of the largest museum school programs in the world, having served over 200,000 children. It was one of the first museum preschools to be accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
