Feeling a little fuzzy after a day of Fourth of July fun? Jump-start your brain with some terrific programs at The Discovery Museums. On Thursday, three programs are running that are sure to appeal to the entire family. Everyone knows that veggies are good for you, but have you ever used them to create a work of art? Now you can -- at 10 a.m., join museum staff in using a variety of food found in the garden to make a painting good enough to eat. At 11 a.m., cuddle up for story time -- they have the books, so you just need to bring your imagination. Finally, at any time during the day, drop in for some Lego building. With others, you can create community projects ranging from spaceships to structures and more. When you're done, you can add your creation to the community board for display at the museum. Thursday, July 5. Museum hours: 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Adults & children, $11; 60+, $10; under 1 year old, teachers and members, free. The Discovery Museums, 177 Main Street, Acton. www.discoverymuseums.org
