International Day of Persons with Disabilities
Saturday, December 3 | 10 AM – 4 PM
This month on the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, visit Pretend City to celebrate neurodiversity with your family! Join us for fun sensory activities that will help your child develop fine motor skills, and take advantage of our free parenting resources and education.
Art (all day):
- Using foam and pipe cleaners, practice beading and make colorful bracelets!
- Play in brightly colored paint and use your hands to explore new textures!
- Enjoy squishing and squeezing colorful slime in our sensory bin!
Purpose Behind the Play: These activities will ensure our kids with movement disabilities will still be able to participate and have fun doing art. All children will develop neuro-pathways through sensory play, learn about patterns and memory, and develop fine motor skills.
Story Time (11am & 2:30pm): Where do Pirates go on Vacation? A fun rhyming tale!
Synopsis: Where do pirates go when there’s no treasure to be found? On Vacation, of course! Follow along with this fun rhyming tale as pirates show us some of the seaside places they like to go!
