Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Martin Luther King Jr

Martin Luther King Jr. Day at Pretend City

Every child is unique, and they should know that no matter how different their friends may look from them, everyone should be treated fairly. On this special day at Pretend City, we want to have an open discussion with your child about equality. Don’t miss out on this important life lesson for your child!

  • Smart Art (in the Art Studio): I Have a Dream’ Community Art > Martin Luther King had a dream of a better world for us all. Today in the Art Studio we will write out our dream on an artistic cloud and attach it to mobile to share it as a community
  • Cultural Connection (11:30 am): >As children create their very own self-portrait, they will engage in discussions that show them that even though we are different in many ways (skin color, hair color, eye color, age, etc.) – everyone is special, and we have many of the same hopes, dreams, and feelings on the inside. 
  • Loud & Proud (3:00 pm): Martin Luther King > The Story of Martin Luther King Jr. > Dr. King worked hard to teach us that all people are equal and that we should treat everyone with kindness. Join us for this storytime where we will learn more about Dr. King and practice using nice words to one another to carry on his legacy.

Purpose Behind the Play: Concept development, prosocial and emotional awareness, and language development. 

Grown-up Tip: Modeling respect through courtesy is a powerful tool. When children see their parents being respectful they learn to be respectful. Use every moment as a teachable moment and model the desired behavior of respect in your daily interactions with others.

Fee:    Included with museum admission. Purchase your ticket here.
