Homeschool Day & Make a Hat Day!

Friday, September 15 @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pm

On the 3rd Friday of every month, we welcome homeschooled kids into the museum to enjoy unlimited access to all of our exhibits! This field experience offers learning through hands-on educational play. Our environment at Pretend City opens a new world of curriculum and activities that challenge students to ask questions and exercise their brains!

Time:    Morning Activities:  Simple Science @ 11:00am

Afternoon Activities: Math Matters @ 2:00pm; Sensational Storytime @ 3:30pm

*Activity times may vary and are subject to change*

Activities today will include the following:

  • Art Studio Sessions: Hats, Hats, Hats! > In the Art Studio today children will be making hats for hat day. What kind of hat will your child make?
  • Simple Science (11:00am): The Color Red > Children will learn about the color red as they go on a scavenger hunt throughout the city looking for all the red items they can find. Then, children will explore what happens to the color red when it is combined with the other primary colors in this simple science lesson.
  • Math Matters (2:00pm): Ladybug Counting Hat Craft > Today children will learn all about the number nine as they make a lady bug hat craft and count out nine ladybug spots for their ladybug.
  • Sensational Storytime (3:30pm): Old Hat New Hat > In Old Hat New Hat, longtime Dr. Seuss collaborators Stan and Jan Berenstain visit the Bear family as they ponder whether Papa Bear needs a new hat or if the old one’s just fine. After the story, children will be led on a texture tour around the museum as they look to find things that are fuzzy, bumpy, and smooth.
  • Grown-up Tip: Children love to reenact their favorite fairy tale stories. This is a great way to have some fun with your little one while working on communication skills and self-confidence. Follow this link to find some fun skits to use at home with your little one today.
