Baby Steps Through Pretend City!

Sunday, January 26 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Baby Steps January

Join us for this January’s Baby Steps event as we play with your little one’s favorite (or maybe not-so-favorite) foods! The museum is open specifically for our littlest pretenders, without the hustle and bustle of bigger kids running around. You and your little one will have special infant and toddler only focused time to play and explore every exhibit throughout Pretend City!  Discover new and fun ways to explore different foods on Sunday, January 26th 8-9:30am! 

Time: 8-9:30am 

Purpose Behind the Play: Physical development through fine motor practice, sensory exploration, concept development, and color recognition.  

  • Art Studio Sessions (8-9:30 am)The Best Mess! > Toddlers and babies will have fun “Playing With Food” in the Art Studio today! This activity is a wonderful tactile experience that stimulates your child’s touch, sight and smell senses! Your little one will utilize their cognitive development while strengthening their fine motor skills!  
  • Story-time (8:45 am)Join us for an engaging and musical circle-time followed by a story-time!

Pick up a free Ages & Stages Questionnaire!* to ensure your little one is developing on track! They’re FREE, fast and easy! Available for Orange County residents only.

Grown-up Tip: Infants have an innate sense of exploration. Offering your infant a variety of textures will spike their senses. Using baby food to paint will allow your infant to explore and taste their artwork. Creating art while learning is a great way to explore new textures and stimulate the senses!  

RSVP: Register HERE; max 150  Fee: $10 per adult, infants and Pretend City Members are FREE! Specifically, for: Infants (0-18 months), & their grownups! For the comfort of our infant guests, no older siblings please. Pretend City will be closed to the general public for this event.
