Fanciful face paint, rocket-inspired art projects, sleight-of-hand by magician Dorian LaChance and decorations that were out of this world were all part of the fun at Mississippi Children’s Museum Day at Batson Children’s Hospital. The event, now in its second year, had a space theme and snacks and treat bags were handed out to patients and their families.
