Baby Steps Through Pretend City!

Monday, July 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Time: 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Monthly Theme: “Let’s Fly”

Soar into Baby Steps as we explore space and beyond! Throughout the month of July, Pretend City is exploring stars, planets and everything outer space! Providing opportunities for your little one to explore helps children be more observant, encourages problem-solving, and expands their descriptive vocabulary. Join us on Monday, July 8th at 2 o’clock for an out of this world event!

Specifically, for Infant (0-18 months), grownups. For the comfort of our infant guests, no older siblings, please. 

Purpose Behind the Play: Curiosity, literacy and language development, social and emotional development, concept development and curiosity demonstration

  • Art Studio Sessions: Ah! An Alien! > Join us in the art studio as we turn your little one’s handprint (or footprint!) into a space exploring, 3-eyed alien! Painting your baby or toddlers’ hands and feet gives them a chance to explore different textures and stimulates brain development!
  • Story-Time (2:30 pm): Explore space with us as we follow the journey of The Monkey On The Moon! This engaging story-time features pop-up pages that are sure to get your little one’s imagination soaring!
  • Dental Screenings (2-3: 30 pm): Whether your little one just got their first tooth or a whole mouth full – stop by Healthy Smiles’ table for a (super) quick dental check-up! It takes less than 5 minutes and they hygienist is here to answer all of your teeth-related questions!

Play Partner: Help Me Grow Orange County, Healthy Smiles of Orange County, Good To Go Coordinator, Pretendgineers and BrainBuilders – our experienced stage staff of trained early childhood and child development educators!

Grown-up Tip: Visit us in the Marina for simple activities that will strengthen your baby’s cognitive skills. Show your baby how to scoop water into a cup and then pour it out. Around 10 months your baby will have fun doing this independently. This activity represents the cause and effect for your baby.
