Spring Forward with Pretend City

Sunday, March 10th

It’s time to Spring Forward for Daylight Savings. Today in the museum we will have activities that help little ones understand what Daylight Savings is and how we use clocks to tell time. Our programming will focus on numbers and grasping the concept of time. 

Purpose Behind the Play: Concept development of directionality, number and color recognition, setting healthy routines, social science through an understanding of time, and gross locomotor development.  

  • Smart Art (Art Studio-Times Vary): Make a Clock > Get inspired by shapes and colors to create your very own clock
  • Sensational Storytime (11:30 am): Maisy’s First Clock > Join us in Orange Plaza as we spring forward through Maisy’s day. We will practice looking at different clocks and identifying the numbers.
  • Math Matters (3:00pm): Clock Race > There’s no time to waste, so let’s get moving! Join us in the construction area as we race to practice identifying the numbers on a clock.  

Grown-up Tip: One way to help your child grasp the concept of time is by using a stopwatch to time certain activities. Many children will be motivated to clean up their toys or get ready for bed faster if you suggest a clock race. Set your timer for 2-5 minutes and see how fast they work to get the job done!
