Monthly Make Believe!

9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The last Tuesday of every month is our Monthly Make Believe!

Each Monthly Make Believe gives you the opportunity to expand your imagination through dress-up, special theatre games, art programming and other fun activities on a monthly theme!

Upcoming Monthly Make Believes: Tag your photos online #PlayKCM 

• Feb 28: Trains, Planes and Automobiles Day! It’s all about wheels and motors and things that go today! Dress up as a pilot, race car driver, or engineer, and take part in a slew of activities to stretch your imagination.  Don’t forget – you can bring non-perishable food items for free child Museum admission as well.

10 a.m. — 3:30 p.m.
Make a Vehicle: With crayons and construction paper build your own vehicle. You can make a boat with wheels, a train with wings, or a two-story, wrap-around car-a-ma-jig.
Pop a Wheelie: Push our wheels around the cones and poles of our obstacle course.
KCM Passport: Fill out a passport of your very own and travel the world without leaving the museum.
Storytimes at 11a.m. and 3p.m.

Let’s “train” our brains with tales of wheels and engines and things that go. Vroom, vroom!
Also head back to Children’s China at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. for the dragon parade!

• Mar 28: Storybook Day! Do you have a beloved storybook character?  Come dressed as your favorite and we’ll enjoy all kinds of literacy-themed activities, many based on your favorite classic stories and childrens' stories from China.  We may even make up some stories of our own!  

Remember to bring non-perishable food or gently used clothing items for one free child Museum admission (one per family) on all Monthly Make Believe days.
