Way to Play Day

May 13, 2022

Friday, May 13 | 9 AM – 3 PM | 2nd Friday of the Month 

Interested in developmental milestones or do you have specific questions regarding your child’s growth? Stop by Community Room 2 to visit with one of our Education Managers to learn more. FREE developmental screenings, free resources, professional information, and hands-on materials will be available for you and your child! 

Purpose Behind the Play:  Fine motor skills, speech and communication, self-help skills, and cognitive development.

Good to Go From Head to Toe, Pretend City’s child development initiative, together with our play partners, are here to assist you with:

Partner: Original Sprout: Baby cream, detangler, and body wash OH MY! Check out these clean body products that are safe for even the youngest clientele. Samples and giveaways included!


Grown-up Tip: Between 18 months – 3 years, children develop the ability to make choices and assert their independence. Adults often label a toddler’s response as a “tantrum,” but often they’re not obstinate, they’re simply overwhelmed by this new ability to choose – something their brain couldn’t do before.  One helpful tactic is to minimize choices – 2 options of shoes, 2 toys to choose from, 2 places you could visit. You can even apply this to their play space in order to facilitate simpler play!  

RSVP: Not required   

Fee: Check-ups and activities are included with museum admission
