Every four years, a “leap day” is added to our calendar to account for the fact that Earth does not travel around the Sun in exactly 24 hours. Today we will be celebrating all the Leap Day baby birthdays. We will be singing happy birthday and cutting and serving a beautiful 3 tier birthday cake provided by our generous partners, The Party Karacters of Mission Viejo, Ca. Party Karacters offers many party characters, activities, cakes, and other add on services for your birthday party or special events. Please visit their website for more information and support this generous partner of Pretend City Children’s Museum. They have made this special event possible for all of our museum guests!

  • Engaging Engineering: Come and build some fun structures in our Construction Site area using 29 pieces of wood.
  • Simple Science: Every four years, a “leap day” is added to our calendar to account for the fact that Earth does not travel around the Sun in exactly 24 hours. How long does it actually take for the Earth to travel around the Sun? Come find out at 12:00 p.m. in our Pretend City Library!

Play Partner: Party Karacters of Mission Viejo, Pretendgineers and Brain Builders, our experienced stage staff of trained early childhood and child development educators, and grown-ups.

Grown-up Tip: Encourage the concept of giving year-round by going through your child’s old toys before or after a birthday and figuring out together what toys you can give away or donate to a local charity.

RSVP:    Not required

Fee:    Included with museum admission- Free admission for you or your child born on Leap Day if you bring in proof of your birthday such as a birth certificate or ID.
