Young children are naturally curious. They always ask “why”’ and “how”? That’s a STEM mindset! These questions can be the beginning of a solution to an important challenge like protecting our environment, curing diseases, or engineering new clean energy technology. Embrace this curiosity by taking the time to explain the things that you understand, and when your child poses a question that you don’t have an answer to, look up the answer together as a family. In this summer program, kids will have fun exploring careers in construction, architecture, and design this summer at Pretend City. Dream It! (11:00 am), join in for this special career exploration activity! Kids will learn about different dream jobs in our community through story times, community partner visits, dramatic play experiences, puppet shows, and art activities. Draw it! (1:00 pm): kids will work on strengthening their fine motor skills through simple hands-on activities like cutting, gluing, sorting, screwing, pinching, lacing, spooning and weaving. These simple activities will help your child get ready for handwriting and drawing activities. Build it! (3:30 pm): children will be inspired by famous architectural landmarks as they explore different building materials and engage with them through fun challenges and play prompts. Included with museum admission.
Dream it, Draw it, Build it – Summer Theme Launch! Presented by Pretend City Children’s Museum, 29 Hubble, Irvine, CA 92618 will start from Friday, June 1, 2018 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
