Valentine’s Day

Friday, February 14 @ 11:00 am - 3:30 pm

Be our Valentine! Enjoy the Lovely Holiday at Pretend City

XOXO Happy Valentine’s Day! Today we will be spreading the love throughout the museum. These activities are sure to fill your little one’s heart with joy, happiness, and love!   

Purpose Behind the Play: Fine motor and physical development, engineering and creativity, imagination and storytelling, prosocial practice, writing, and social-emotional skills. 

*Activity times may vary and are subject to change* 

  • Smart Art (in the Art Studio): Heart Lacing – This art project will having you stringing along. All little “big kids” should know how to tie their shoes, so let’s have some fun practicing this fine motor skill with some heart lacing.
  • Engaging Engineering (11:30 am): Heart Towers – We love to have fun at Pretend City! This STEM activity will challenge your child to problem-solve while building a structure using some sweet treats as building materials.
  • Sensational Story Time (3:00 pm): If You’ll Be My Valentine – What kind of Valentine would you send? If you join our storytime you’ll get inspired to spread the love. After the storytime, we will be creating special valentines for your child to share with a loved one.

Grown-up Tip: It’s never too early to help children express love and friendship in ways that transcend materialism. Encourage your child to participate in an activity that their friend or family member enjoys, even though it may not be their favorite. This selflessness will teach your child that “I love you” means so much more than three words inscribed on a candy heart.
