Celebrate Pride and the history of the vibrant LGBTQ+ community this June through a collection of stories that encourage kindness, compassion, & understanding, while also sharing the varied experiences of children with LGBTQ+ identities and families.
Purpose Behind the Play: Science fundamentals, language and literacy, and gross motor skills
Smart Art (on-going): Creative colors> This special time is all about individuality, kindness, celebration, and joy. And our art will reflect this through colorful expressions!
Sensational Story Time in Orange Plaza (11 AM & 2:30 PM):
- Julian Is A Mermaid> Join us for this beautifully illustrated story about Julian and his abuela as they go on a journey together, exploring Julian’s sense of self and individuality.
- Directly after we will be exploring personal affirmations to help build our own identities and sense of self-worth. Examples include: I am strong! I am unique! I am valuable!
Grown-up Tip: When a child has a mom, dad, and baby brother, that’s what they know as a family structure. But every family is unique! When a child encounters a family that looks different than theirs, they often have questions. Encourage their questions and answer them honestly with simple answers. Sometimes there’s a grandma, other times two moms, or one dad. Remind them that ultimately, a family is made up of people who love and care for one another.
RSVP: Not required
Fee: Included with museum admission
