Memorial Day

Join us on Memorial Day to honor the fallen heroes of our military! We will host a morning Pledge of Allegiance and a moment of silence to pay our respects. Pretend City will be open a full day today so bring your family to learn and play with us!

Purpose Behind the Play: Practice with prosocial skills, emotional expression, math cognition, language development, and locomotor development 

  • Smart Art (Art Studio-Times Vary)Poppies of Remembrance – Red poppies are such gorgeous flowers and have become a symbol of remembrance of soldiers who have died during wartime. Children will have the opportunity to make poppy flowers today using coffee filters and red paint. 
  • Loud & Proud (11:30a): Morning Pledge of Allegiance > Today we will honor our fallen heroes with the pledge of allegiance and a moment of silence in Orange Plaza. Following our moment of remembrance, we will gather around for story time.  
  • Music & Movement (1:00p): Memorial March > We are marching on in memory of those who have past. Grab a flag, some streamers and your marching shoes as we parade around the city in celebration to some classic patriotic tunes.  
  • Math Matters (3:00p): Pattern Play > Stars, strips, reds and whites, join us for some patterning exercises to enhance our star-spangled math skills.  

Grown-up Tip: Today is the perfect day to honor your loved one by creating some red poppies in our art studio. If your family has lost someone due to war and conflict you can make one in remembrance. Participation in art and the creative process can help a young child express deep feelings. This is great for our younger kids that may not have the words.
