Senior Citizen Day Celebration!

Wednesday, August 21, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Senior Citizen Day at Pretend City

Wednesday, August 21

Today we celebrate senior citizens! We are acknowledging the knowledge they share, love they give, and joy they bring. Join in on the fun as we celebrate Senior Citizen’s Day. We will show our appreciation for our grandparents with story time, art projects, and more.

Grandparents (over 65) receive 50% off their admission!

Purpose Behind the Play: Concept development through question inquiry, demonstration of curiosity, communication development, literacy practice, and gross and locomotor practice 

Smart Art (Times Vary): Handprint Keepsake > Join us in the art studio today, where your little one will be able to make a special keepsake to take home to their grandparents!
Growing Up Great Games (11:30 am)Grandparents BINGO > This isn’t your typical grandparents’ Bingo. Partner up with your favorite senior and reflect on all of the fun things you’ve experienced together in this exciting BINGO game!  
Sensational Story Time (3:00 pm): Grandma, Grandpa, and Me > Join Mercer Mayer’s classic and beloved character, Little Critter®, for a sleepover on Grandma and Grandpa’s farm! From milking the cows to picking blueberries and baking a pie for the County Fair contest, there’s so much to see and do. Little Critter even adds a secret ingredient to his pie. But will it be enough to make it a winner? 
Family Fitness Fun (4:50 pm): Grandparent & Me Dance Party > Join us in Orange Plaza for a fun Dance party featuring the classic song We are Family by Sister Sledge! In addition, parents, staff, and kiddos will all join in on the fun.
