Celebrate the 4th of July!

Tuesday, July 3, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Let freedom ring! Pretend City is open a FULL DAY to celebrate Independence Day and you’re invited! Stop by the museum for some patriotic fun where your child can partake in our parade through the museum, an Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty fashion show, a star-spangled science lesson, and a sparkling craft to take home.

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

Afternoon Activity: Math Matters @ 3:30pm, Patriotic Dance Party @ 4:50pm

*Activity times may vary and are subject to change*

* Smart Art: Sparkling Fireworks > Fireworks are a symbol of Independence Day. Your children will let their colors burst in our Art Studio by creating their own “fireworks”. * Sensational Story Time (11:30am): Fourth of July Mice > Hooray! It’s the Fourth of July, and the parade is ready to start! The Holiday Mice lead the way to a day full of nonstop fun. The best part comes at the end of the day when fireworks go BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Three cheers for the red, white, and blue!

* Math Matters (3:30pm): Flag Patterns > Children will learn about the design of our flag and the patterns of its stars and stripes before they create a pattern of their own using red and white paper strips. * Headin’ Home a Patriot Parade (4:50pm): Stars & Stripes > Join us in Orange Plaza for this red, white, and blue parade home through our city streets! Grown-up Tip: Continually introduce new words to your child. Identifying words like red, blue, celebration, independence, patriotic and flag will give your child word association and recognition and build vocabulary.
