Family Fun Friday


Date: Fridays
Time: 11 a.m.
Ages: All ages
Location: KidZone Museum
Cost: Free for members and with admission.

This is a play-based class designed to inspire and enrich kids’ brains, bodies and hearts. These classes are all about exploration and discovery, where curiosity is treasured and kids are encouraged to feel, touch and learn through sensory activities. Let your kid communicate through art and have some good, Family Fun Friday!

Friday, Feb. 3 - Spinning Art
Sensory play includes any activity that stimulates your young child’s senses: touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. Sensory activities facilitate exploration and naturally encourage children to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore. Spending time stimulating their senses helps children develop cognitively, linguistically, socially and emotionally, physically and creatively. Come and learn all about child development through sensory play, find activities and crafts that encourage sensory play and discover how to make your own sensory table at home!!!

Friday, Feb. 10 - Valentine Suncatchers
Make love-ly suncatchers for a loved one. Kids will create a beautiful decoration for the house or the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for anyone.

Friday, Feb. 17 - Fizzy Dough
We will create a fizzing cloud dough with dual functionality: sensory play dough as well as a science experiment. Once the kids are done shaping and molding we will bring out the vinegar and droppers and start fizzing!

Friday, Feb. 24 - Marble Milk Paper
The combination of science and art makes Marbled Milk Paper a fantastic hands-on STEAM activity.
