The wait is finally over! The Cheshire Children’s Museum Kick-Off To Summer is finally here. We have so many fun and amazing learning activities prepared to help us jump right into the season. As we have mentioned before, every day is going to have a theme – Art, water, chemical reactions, and Summer! And to bring it home, we’re going to have a special event each day!
The staff has worked on each activity as the heat continues to rise, and we hope that everyone is ready to have fun. It’s time to slip on your sandals and grab a hat because we’re just getting started.
So just what does our schedule look like?
Kicking things off, TODAY we will be having a super special Art Day. The kids (and parents) will be able to come and have their faces painted all day! We’ll also be providing chalk for chalk art, and there will be some rock painting happening as well. As for our special event, we will be providing a few different types of food for the kids to build food sculptures.
Following that up; our friends at Oatey Plumbing have generously donated to our Water World-themed Wednesday. All the fun will include water-based games, water mazes, and even boat races. During all the fun we’ll be having a pizza party to boot, just to complete that pool party feel.
Thursday, we’ll be putting on our mad scientist coats, and getting ready to make some Chemical reactions. The kids will learn loads of cool science; as we show them to mix things up and make oobleck, slime, and even blow bubbles. Topping it off, we’ll be setting off bath bombs to see how they react in the waters!
Ending our awesome kick-off, we will be focusing on Summer Safety for Friday. This will include lessons on how to stay safe in the summer sun and protect our skin. We will also be giving bicycle safety lessons, and teaching the kids safe water habits for the pool or beach. The whole day will have a ton of big games between the lessons, and we’ll end it with an ice cream party!
The day's events will run from 11 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon. We can wait to see you there!
