For ages 0-36 months
Toddlers take over the museum during Baby Bloomers!
Baby Bloomers is a special program during which the museum is open exclusively for visitors ages 0–3 years and their families.
Now being offered on Saturday mornings from 8 – 10 am. Baby Bloomers provides caregivers and early learners the chance to experience Thinkery together in an environment focused solely on them.
The program takes place on the second floor and backyard of the museum and includes two-story times, parachute play, and free play that supports the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development of our earliest learners.
Reserve your tickets in advance to enjoy open-ended explorations and learning through play.
Here is what we have planned for this month!

Fall on the Farm
Fall is here! Let’s celebrate the changing of the seasons together. Play while supporting your little one’s language development and STEAM learning!
Let’s Get Messy: The pigs on the farm have been playing in mud! Engage your senses as you give pretend pigs a scrub-a-dub-dub!
Experience Harvest Season: Chase autumn vegetables through the water. Scrub them with brushes and drain the water with colanders.
Join us for Story Time at 8:30 AM & 9:30 AM for songs & stories about the changing seasons, leaves, and all things fun on the farm!
Farm Workbench: Engage in dramatic play with your little one and pretend you work on the farm while using kid-sized tools to tinker! Dramatic play is a great tool for language development and can strengthen the bond between you & your child!
Dancing Colors: Watch colors fly as leaves float through a wind tunnel. Toss leaves in the air and watch them fly in the wind tunnel! Observe how moving air makes these colorful leaves soar!
Autumn Exploration: Pour, scoop, and engage all your senses! Can you find the Autumn veggies hiding in the sensory bin?
Search the room for fruits and vegetables: Look high and low, describing what you see along the way.
Sensory sheep: Feel the textures of the farm. Build vocabulary as you describe what you feel.
Fall on the Farm Fun: Bond with your little one and challenge their gross motor skills by jumping, rocking, and moving to the music! Dancing together encourages pro-social skills. Join us at 9 AM for Parachute Play with a barnyard boogie twist!
Our Backyard (Outside)
Floating Fun: Chase leaves as they float through our outdoor springs!
