Toddlers take over the museum during
Baby Bloomers is a special program during which the museum is open exclusively for visitors ages 0–3 years and their families.
Currently being offered on Saturday mornings from 9 – 11 am through May 15. Baby Bloomers provides caregivers and early learners the chance to experience Thinkery together in an environment focused solely on them.
Summer Baby Bloomers hours will begin on Saturday, May 22 with
NEW hours from 8-10 am.
For the health and safety of our guests, we are limiting capacity and will host the program on the second floor only. Activities are intended to be self-guided and promote safe distancing amongst guests. We will host two Story Times and free play that support the social, emotional, and cognitive development of our earliest learners.
Reserve your tickets in advance to enjoy open-ended explorations and
learning through play.
May – Up in the Sky!
Things are looking up this month! We’re going on a sky-high adventure to explore what’s above including rockets, flying animals, clouds, and so much more.
Here is what we have planned for this month!
Story Nook: Sky’s the limit with the songs and stories we will share each week.
Currents: Use tools to explore colorful ice and create a rainbow stream as it melts. Recreate a rain shower with cloud toys. What do you see, hear and feel?
Let’s Grow: Practice fine motor skills by building a bird, kite, plane, or other flying object using magnetic tiles or build a model rocket from different wooden parts. Use the wind tunnel to explore how moving air makes objects fly and try to find a hidden object on an image of the moon.
Move! Studio: Use your whole body and pretend to be a rocket and blast off! Launch a model rocket and see how high it goes.
Bloom: Encourage your child to use their eyes, ears, and hands to explore sky-themed sensory baskets.
Search the room for flying insects and animals and describe what you see along the way.
Photo Booth: Snap a photo while your little one exploring our sky theme. Share your photo by tagging us on social media. #ThinkeryATX @ThinkeryATX
