Bubble Bath Day
January 7, 2023
Saturday, January 7 | all day
Splish Splash! It’s Bubble Bath Day at Pretend City! Stop by and play with cool, colorful bubbles while your family engages in immersive scientific fun!
Art (all day):
- Discover pattern making using rubber ducks! Dip them into blue paint and then press them onto paper to create fun shapes!
- Explore a blue bath filled with tons of bubbles! Help clean our figurines, or play with our rubber duck friends!
Purpose of the Play: These activities will allow children to learn about cause and effect, develop fine motor skills, practice pattern making, and learn about how to make fun bubbles.
Science (11am – 12pm):
- BubblePOP is coming to Pretend City to engage in an interactive workshop for our guests based around the science of bubbles! This engaging lesson will run about 30 minutes! Following the science behind bubbles presentation, BubblePOP will support children in a full body bubble experience where they will be encompassed by a bubble! Children will also engage in smoke bubbles and see how dry ice and bubbles mix!
Purpose of the Play: Young children can engage and interact with bubbles – promoting visual tracking, fine motor skills, and hand-eye and foot-eye coordination. For the busy adult, did you know bubbles are a known stress reliever?
About the Play Partner: BubblePOP is a growing private company who specializes in taking bubbles to the next level of fun. They focus on STEAM starting at a young age and bridge the gap between learning and play!
Activity (directly following BubblePOP workshop):
- To keep the ambiance going, we are going to turn on our bubble machine, add music and dancing scarves for children to enjoy the beauty of bubbles!
RSVP: Not required
Fee: Included with museum admission
Grown-up Tip: The transitions to bath time, (just like other times of the day), that are not consistently planned and/or communicated will be a battle, be unsafe, or add to the chaos of a family’s day. Bedtime routines, for example, are important for winding down, consistency, and bonding time. Use bath time to make the evening special by asking about your child’s day and what they are looking forward to the rest of the week. It can also be a time to vent and express that some days are harder than others.
