National Puzzle Day

Monday, January 29 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Puzzles and board games strengthen your child’s critical thinking skills. Today at Pretend City, join us for National Puzzle Day; a day full of lessons to engage your child in critical thinking situations.

Activity Times: Morning Activities: Engaging Engineering @ 11:00am

Afternoon Activities: Growing Up Great Game @ 12:00pm

Today we will have the following puzzle themed activities for children and their families to participate in:

  • Art Studio Sessions: Puzzle Piece Name > Today in the Art Studio children will make their very own puzzles using the letters in their name.
  • Engaging Engineering (11:00am): Blue Block Fun > Children will meet in our Marquee Theatre for a fun team building challenge utilizing The Imagination Playground. Can your team replicate our structure made of blue blocks? Which team will have the fastest time?
  • Growing Up Great Game (12:00pm): Puzzle Piece Quest > Join us in the Orange Plaza for a fun scavenger hunt through the museum in search of giant puzzle pieces. Bring the puzzle pieces back to Orange Plaza where we will put the puzzle together for one last clue leading the children to a fun surprise!

Grown-up Tip: Create your very own puzzle at home by printing out a fun picture from online or using one of your children’s works of art. Laminate the picture and then cut it into puzzle sized pieces and do this puzzle together as a family.
