What to Do Today: Oct. 13

Bring your artistic little one (ages 2-3) to Toddler Art from 11am-12pm today at the Dallas Museum of Art. Kids and their caregivers will examine some of the galleries' masterpieces before enjoying time in Arturo's Nest, the museum's cool kids area. This month's Toddler Art theme is "seasons." Pre-registration is required, so call ahead! $10 adults; children younger than 12 free.

Ever seen thousands of canned goods arranged into cool, larger-than-life structures? You'll get your chance with the Canstruction Competition and Exhibition from 10am-9pm today (and continuing through Oct. 18) at Hurst's North East Mall. You can vote on your favorites; awards will be given in categories like Best Use of Labels and Best Meal. The coolest part? All the cans go to the Tarrant Area Food Bank to help local people in need. Free.

If you're a parent who loves storytimes but can't ever make it (bookstores and libraries generally schedule storytimes right between your boring staff meeting and your pre-lunch coffee break), you won't want to miss Twilight Toddler Time at 6:30pm today at Denton's Emily Fowler Branch Library. Children ages 12-36 months and their caregivers will enjoy stories, songs, puppets and more — all at a later hour! Free.
