These kits were designed to work with our Facebook Live programming (see schedule on the right). Have fun!
Upcoming Pretend City Events
Activity One: Groundhog Day Shadow Exploration
Do you know if the groundhog saw his shadow this year? Folklore says that if the sun is shining when the groundhog comes out of his burrow and he sees his shadow on the ground, the groundhog will return to its burrow and winter will continue for six more weeks. But, if its cloudy out and the groundhog does not see his shadow, spring will come early this year. Today let’s explore shadows together!
Activity Two: Valentine’s Day Coding
Happy Valentine’s Day! Today’s screen free activity introduces your little one to the concept of coding as we use beads to represent the different letters in our names. Did you know you can use colors and numbers to represent letters? Using our coding sheet below, lets code our names to share with those we love!
Activity Three: President’s Day Water Drops
Originally meant to honor our first President, George Washington, President’s Day has grown to honor all of the United States Presidents. Today let’s honor our Presidents as we learn about surface tension and gravity.
Activity Four: The Color of Us
In honor of Black History Month, this activity explores skin color and its uniqueness to every person. As we look at differences in one another and appreciate our individual beauty, we learn what makes each of us truly them. In this activity we will experiment with color mixing until we fine our true skin tones color. People are not simply black or white, but rather a unique shade of color.
$30 for members; $40 for nonmembers
Healthy Kids, Healthy Museum
