National Opposite Day

Thursday, January 25 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Up & down, hot & cold! Today at Pretend City, we will teach your child about opposites they encounter every day! It’s a wacky, backwards day for all to enjoy!

Activity Times:   Morning Activities: Simple Science @ 11:00am

Afternoon Activities: Growing Up Great Game @ 3:30pm

  • Art Studio Sessions: Opposite Emotions > Today in the Art Studio, children will make paper plate faces with the opposite emotions of happy and sad.
  • Simple Science (11:00am): Hot & Cold > Children will explore the concepts of hot and cold in this fun, engaging, and interactive simple science sorting activity.
  • Growing Up Great Game (3:30pm): Opposite Quest > Join us in the Orange Plaza for a fun scavenger hunt through the museum in search of opposites.

Grown-up Tip: Ideas to celebrate opposites at home today are reading a book backwards, making an opposites collage, and letting your older children say the opposite of what they mean for the day.
