Play Partner: Pretendgineers and Brain Builders; our experienced stage staff of trained early childhood and development educators.

Grown-up Tip: When your child sees the New Year’s Eve ball and asks, “What’s that?” don’t give a quick answer. Try asking: “what do you think it is?” Explore the object together using descriptive words to determine what it is. This allows your child to experiment with ideas and use critical thinking skills. They will get a thrill once they see the clock strike midnight and the ball light up. Explain to them the symbolism of the ball drop and if you don’t know it yourself – look it up and learn together!
