Extend the Day, Expand the Play Continues in February! We hope to see you afterschool for our expanded hours pilot program. We are open until 6 pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. KidsPlay is the perfect bridge between school and dinner especially during these cold winter months!
KidsPlay Family Fun Fair! Sunday, February 19 from 11 am to 4 pm. Don’t miss this special once-a-year event held at both the Warner Theatre and KidsPlay museum. This is a fun-filled day for families to learn about community organizations, participate in activities, enjoy museum exhibits, watch live performances, and much more! Tickets are on sale now at the Museum and they will also be available the day of the event at both KidsPlay and the Warner.
KidsPlay Programs - Learning is fun with play! The Big Ideas for our Preschool programs this month include our sense of hearing (What is that sound? What words do you like to hear?), Presidents Day (Where does a President live: houses and maps. Just like Abraham Lincoln!), and the weather (What is weather? Who cares about the weather? What is snow?). We hope you can join us! Please see our calendar for days and times.
Caregiver Circle. Our Caregiver Circle has a new time! It is now at 9:30 am on Thursdays. Yes - this is before the museum officially opens! Caregiver Circle provides a dedicated time for caregivers to meet, relax, and talk while children engage in playful learning experiences in our multi-purpose room.
Pirate Treasure Pop-up Craft. Saturday, February 25 and Sunday, February 26 from 12 to 2 pm each day. Our friends at the Warner are premiering, Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon, a musical based on the bestselling book by Mary Pope Osborne. Join us beforehand to get into the pirating spirit by making a pirate treasure craft project to take home.
