I CAN Be Healthy
Discovery Place Kids | Huntersville
This month, we are taking care of our bodies and learning how to stay healthy.
Through stories, games, art and craft projects, little guests will learn how to choose healthy foods, move around with exercises and care for their teeth.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, play with your food as we explore ways to use fruits and vegetables to create Healthy Art. On Wednesdays and Fridays, gear up for the Winter Olympics as we learn about different sports and this year's host country of Korea.
Additional winter activities for kids include:
