Mother’s Day Celebration

Saturday, May 12, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Mother’s Day is a time to show appreciation for all our moms! Celebrate your mom with a special day at Pretend City! Treat her with our mommy and me activities, games and art projects! Playing at our museum is the perfect way to spend this holiday and create some quality mommy and me bonding time! Happy Mother’s Day from our Pretend City family! 

Time:    A.M. Activities: Sensational Story Time @ 11:00am  

P.M. Activities: Growing-Up Great @ 3:30pm 

*Scheduled Activity Times are subject to change* 

Activities for the day include: 

  • Art Studio Sessions: Handprint Bouquet – This activity will delight your child’s senses as they use their hands to create a colorful bouquet for Mom or for another special caregiver in your child’s life!  
  • Sensational Story Time (11:00am): The Night Before Mother’s DayThis sweet story is a fun way to celebrate Mother’s Day. After the story children will have the opportunity to create a very special coupon for the caregiver of their choosing. This coupon can be for a spa day, cuddle time, foot rub, or other special activity. 
  • Growing Up Great (3:30pm): What’s in Mom’s Purse? > Mothers and children will gather around Orange Plaza to play this interactive game. Our Pretendgineers will call out an item that might be found in a mom’s purse, such as a comb, a package of tissues, a tube of lipstick or a driver’s license. The kids must then go to their mom and retrieve the item. Kids can also go to grandma, aunts or big sisters – anyone who may have a purse on hand. This is a great game to work on vocabulary and communication skills. 

Grown-up Tip: Make sure that the moms in your child’s life have a memorable Mother’s Day. There’s nothing that mothers like more than a lovingly crafted handmade gift on Mother’s Day. Making something like bath salts will be a nice handmade gift for mom that will also encourage her to take some time to herself to relax.
