Universal Children’s Day

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Today is Universal Children’s Day! At Pretend City, we are celebrating diversity and focusing on making the world a better place! Join us as we teach little ones about accepting others and practicing peace in our own lives.

Time:    Morning Activities:  Sensational Story Time @ 11:30 a.m.

Afternoon Activities:  Music & Movement @ 3:30 p.m.

Children can do their part at Pretend City by participating in the following peaceful activities:

  • Smart Art: Peace Doves > Join us in the Art studio to make a white peace dove using white paint and your very own handprint. Children will also practice their writing and vocabulary skills to write the word peace. This is a great opportunity to talk to your child about what peace means to them.
  • Sensational Story Time (11:30am): It’s Okay to Be Different > This colorful story by Todd Parr is a great book about embracing the differences and unique qualities in others. Each child will make a wish of their own for world peace and add it to our Wish for the World Wall in Orange Plaza!
  • Let’s Move (3:00 pm): Classic Games > Join us in Orange Plaza as we join hands and make new friends as we play some classic children’s games like Simon Says and Parachute games. Everyone is welcome as we celebrate the child in all of us! 
  • Headin’ Home Parade (4:50 pm): It’s a Small World > Today’s Headin’ Home Parade will feature a well-known song about world peace!

Grown-up Tip: Create a peaceful corner in your home for you and your children to enjoy. This space can be used for meditation, prayers, reading, or calming down. Put art, books, flowers, and other peaceful items in this space that will help to create a feeling of peace and calm for your entire family. This would be a great alternative to time-out when your children are experiencing overwhelming feelings of anger and frustration.
