being MVP: {Almost} Wordless Wednesday: Pretend City

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday: Pretend City

Disclosure: I received entrance to Pretend City on 3.15.14. All opinions are my own.

We went to Pretend City this past weekend and the kiddos had a blast, as usual. It is the most amazing place for your littles and they always have amazing activities going on. Spring is in the air so what better way than to head on over to Pretend City for some good 'ole fun?




Get that grocery list ready and grab a basket; it’s time to stock up on groceries!  Grown-ups and children will learn about all the fun things that happen behind the scenes in a grocery store during the month of March at Pretend City Children’s Museum’s Grocery Store! From the farm to the market, to the weighing and sorting of food, a grocery store runs on an intricate and exciting system. 



March Market Madness gives grown-ups and children a new perspective on how to engage in a grocery store. Through meaningful play in Pretend City’s Grocery Store, children can learn which foods are the most popular, why some foods must be kept frozen, and how groceries should be packed in bags. Create a shopping list in the Our Home exhibit and journey through the aisles in search of their grocery goodies all month long. The opportunities for learning are endless! 


Thursday, March 20: First Day of Spring 

Time: A.M. Activities: Music & Movement, Good to Go Game; P.M. Activities: Science Secrets, Nature Tales 

Spring is in the air! There's nothing like those little buds on the trees, butterflies, birds, bees and the extended hours of daylight. And what better way to celebrate the first day of spring than with a Spring Fling! Join us in celebrating the new season with the following fun activities: 
Music & Movement: Spring Sing – This spring-themed circle time will introduce your child to spring songs that will help them remember the concepts of the season. 

Good to Go Game: Spring Shapes Relay – Let your little one work in cooperation with others to complete relays and build their social skills. This special spring relay will encourage children to work on identifying and matching spring shapes while working together to complete this movement relay. 

Science Secrets: Planting Party – Spring is the season for growth. Children will learn all about the life cycle of a plant through song as they plant their very own take home flower. 

Nature Tales: I is for Inchworm – Children will observe & interact with the worms – eew! Or is it? Come find out during this activity time. 



Friday, March 28: AAA Road Safety Day Open Roads

Time: 10:00a.m. to 5:00p.m.

It's surprising to know that many children don't really know where food comes from. Today we will focus on helping children understand the big rig journey that food takes to get from the farm to the dinner table. With the help of Pretend City’s partners from AAA of Southern California, the museum will also give tips on how to stay safe on the roads while these trucks make their deliveries. 

Sensational Story Time: Join Truck Driver Tom on his cross-country road trip! Children will feel like they are on the open road journey with Tom as they learn about different trucks that carry a variety of goods. 
Growing Up Great Game: Share the Road - Children will get to experience share the road as they take to the streets to make deliveries to and from the grocery store. Parents: make sure you’ve got your listening ears on for real tips you can use while on the road. 

Goods on the Go – This smart art activity will channel your child’s inner truck driver. See what goods they will decide to fill their delivery truck with during this collage activity. 

*AAA of Southern California will be in attendance with more information on road safety including safe driving tips near commercial vehicles and child seat safety. Make sure to bring in your AAA membership card for general admission discount.
