Picnic With Teddy Bears At Creative Discovery Museum March 22

Part Of Preschool Adventure Day

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Kids are invited to bring a teddy bear or favorite stuffed animal to Creative Discovery Museum’s Teddy Bear Picnic Preschool Adventure Day on Saturday, March 22, from 10 a.m.-noon.

Preschoolers will play at Winnie the Pooh’s house and then visit Corduroy’s part of the woods where they can help him search for his missing button. Children can also picnic with panda bears and travel with Brown Bear to discover what he sees. The polar bears will be playing in the sensory snow and the kids can help them listen for interesting sounds.

Preschool Adventure Saturdays provide museum experiences for children ages 18 months to 4 years. Each activity will be educationally and developmentally appropriate, so children will experience the theme of the day in a variety of ways that will be exciting for them, said officials. Preschool Adventure Day will provide multi-sensory, hands-on activities that incorporate science, music, art, literacy and fun. 

“Children learn best when they are engaged in play,” said Jenette Dean, early childhood manager. “Preschool Adventure Day: Teddy Bear’s Picnic will provide an exciting and memorable experience for children 18 months to four-years-old.”

This event is included with paid admission to the Museum.
