Adventure Time is an Educational and Fun Thing for Kids to do in Kansas City
What is Adventure Time? It’s something special at Paradise Park. Our educational specialists have poured their hearts into creating curriculum that is unique, interactive, fun AND educational. Kids don’t even realize they are learning because they’re having so much fun. It lasts about a half hour and is facilitated by our friendly Play Facilitators.
Educational, Experiential, Hands-on, Sensory and Imaginative Learning Activities Included in Adventure Time:
Imagination-capturing storytelling followed by a unique interactive activity that connects to the story and provides great kinesthetic learning.
Children follow basic instructions to create their own art project that expands on the theme and encourages small motor skill development. We have all the art supplies set up so you don’t have to have a mess at home!
Kids love to make their own creative treat to eat when it’s finished. The Cooking Station teaches children to try new foods, work together and learn measuring skills. And, it’s just plain fun!
Week 5: New Year’s Celebration (Dec 29 – 31)
In this last week of 2018, we’re celebrating the New Year in Discovery Play Adventure Time! It’s a kid-friendly way for families to welcome in 2019! (Dec 26 – 31)
Then come enjoy our Family-Friendly New Year’s Eve ball drop on Dec 31 at noon!
Performance – We’ll begin with a story titled The Night Before New Year’s by Natasha Wing. In this version of the classic poem, a brother and sister struggle to stay away until midnight to ring in the new year. Afterward we’ll connect the story to two fun, interactive activities to help ring in the celebration. Kids will do a New Year’s Freeze Dance to some upbeat music while making some joyful noise with their noisemakers and then FREEZE when the music stops, and yell, “Happy New Year!” Then together we’ll do our very own Countdown as we make our way to the art studio.
Art Studio – Children and their grown-ups will follow basic instructions and use their small motor skills to make a colorful confetti bag to inspire a “confetti-ready” celebration.Additionally, you and your child can get your creative juices flowing even more at the three self-guided art tables. We have all the supplies set up so you don’t have to have a mess at home! Choose from a variety of projects that can also double as decorations: make their very own New Year’s Hat, create a pretend jar for their New Year’s Wishes, and decorate a paper Happy New Year Balloon!
Cooking Station – We’ll create our own mini celebration as children cook up their very own Countdown Cookie that they can eat as a treat when they’ve finished!
