You may have seen my post about Pretend City housing an initiative called: “Good to Go from Head to Toe.” At the time I wrote that post, I hadn’t visited the museum yet. My kids were thrilled when we were invited to learn more about the initiative and the activities at the Museum.
Way to Play Days
In fact, we arrived on a Way to Play Day (2nd Friday of every month) where many families were taking part in skill building activities put on my partners in the study. Grab a “Way to Play Adventure Guide” which features tabbed sections based on your child’s age and correlated with the American Academy of Pediatrics milestones. It suggests ways to learn about your child’s development through play at the museum.
You’ll have to check the calendar for all the amazing workshops sponsored by the initiative. In March, there’s L.E.A.N. Start (Nutrition and Fitness) and COPEing with Toddler Behavior. Click to the Event Calendar tab from the main www.begood2go.org website to find out more and register for classes.
