At Pretend City

Specifically for: Children of all ages; Grown-ups
Spring is in the air! There’s nothing like those little buds on the trees, butterflies, birds, bees, and the extended hours of daylight. And what better way to celebrate than with a Spring Fling! Join us to celebrate the season with fun activities throughout the day:
- Music & Movement: Spring Sing – This spring themed circle time will introduce your child to spring songs that will help them remember the concepts of the season.
- Good to Go Game: Spring Shapes Relay – As children work in cooperation with one another to complete relays they are building upon their social skills. This special relay will work on identifying and matching spring shapes while working together to complete this movement relay.
- Science Secrets: Planting Party – Spring is the season for growth. Today learn all about the life cycle of a plant through song as you plant your very own take-home flower.
- Nature Tales: I is for Inchworm – Children will get to observing & interacting with the worms – eew! Or is it? Come find out in the fun, curiosity inspiring, and cool activity time.
Play Partner: Pretendgineers and Brain Builders, our experienced stage staff of trained early childhood and child development educators, grown-ups
Grown-up Tip: The seasons are a great way to help your child understand change. Photograph your child in different seasons. Make sure that the characteristics of the season are apparent in the environment. Ask your child to write a story to go with each picture. Use the pictures to sequence the seasons. These pictures and activities will show your children how they are growing and changing with the season.
