Celebrate America Recycles Day

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Go Green! Pretend City is encouraging little ones to take care of Mother Earth and practice recycling at our museum as well as at home! Join us as we celebrate recycling and learn all about it with programming, activities, and games! 

Time:    Morning Activities:  Sensational Story Time @ 11:30 a.m.

Afternoon Activities:  Queen Green Performance @ 12:30pm; Symbols in a Second @ 3:30 p.m.

  • Smart Art: Help to build our recycle city in the art studio. All day we will be working with recycled materials. What will you transform paper rolls, popsicle sticks, and cotton balls into?
  • Sensational Story Time (11:30am): We are Extremely Very Good Recyclers> This book by Lauren Child, featuring Charlie and Lola, will introduce children to the idea of recycling.  After the reading, children will work on their science and math skills as they sort items into different recycling bins.
  • Play Partner Performance (12:30pm): Queen Green will lead children in song and dance and speak about ways we can protect the environment! Queen Green’s Eco-Rhymes engage children through familiar tunes and fun dance moves while instilling important environmental lessons!
  • Symbols in a Second (3:30pm): Don’t Throw That Away> This lesson will help your child identify the recycling symbol and see objects in different ways.  All we have to do is use our imagination!  Continue the fun and imagination with our ultimate recycling machine to build to your hearts content. At the end create an earth badge as your pledge to help keep our world clean.

Grown-Up Tip: Look around your home and find items you can recycle. Use an empty cardboard box as a recycling bin for aluminum, plastics, or paper. You and your child can decorate the box and put in an accessible place. Your child will share a newfound interest in recycling with playmates and your family.
