Celebrate Mad Hatter Day!

Saturday, October 6, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

It’s tea time! Join us as we celebrate the Mad Hatter and become a little mad ourselves! We will have fun activities all day long including hat making, a tea party, dancing, and art projects! Alice and the Hare will make an appearance as well!

Time:    Morning Activities: Sensational Story Time @ 11:30am

Afternoon Activities: Character Visit @ 12:30pm, Let’s Move @ 3:30pm

  • Smart Art: Mad Hats > Today, in the Art Studio your child will be able to create their own mad hatter hats. Be sure to take your hat with you to the tea party!
  • Sensational Story Time (11:30am): Tea Party Rules > This delightful lesson will inspire tea party etiquette in your child! This fun story is about a cub who joins a tea party and must follow rules to get a cookie. After story time, join us for a tea party so that we can practice our new manners!
  • Character Visit (12:30-1:30pm): The Rabbit Princess > Our partners from Party Karacters will bring out the Rabbit Princess to join in our tea party festivities in Orange Plaza. Be sure to bring your camera and autograph books for a photo opportunity and meet and greet.
  • Let’s Move (3:30pm): Join us for a Mad Hatter Dance Party in Orange Plaza. Dancing is a great way to help get your children get moving and developing those gross motor skills.

Play Partner: Party Karacters

Grown-up Tip: A tea party is a great activity for your child to practice their socialization skills and manners. Encourage your child to use polite language throughout the entire activity. Model for your child when to say “please”, “thank you”,  and “excuse me”. For example, you can say, “Could you please pass the cookies?” Or, “Thank you for the tea.” Children learn best from copying you!
