Discovery Place Kids | Huntersville
From winter animals to winter weather, we’re exploring all the season has to offer!
Stop by Discovery Place Kids throughout the month of January to learn how animals protect themselves from the cold and why winter is so cold and icy. We'll use stories, crafts, science experiments and other hands-on activities to make learning fun.
Did you know that no two snowflakes are alike? On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we'll read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats and then learn about symmetry with a snowflake craft.
On Wednesdays and Fridays, find out what snowmen do while we sleep as we read Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner and then make a snowman to take home.
Additional winter activities for kids include:
January 13 & 14 - Hibernation Station: Winter is hibernation time! Explore different animals that sleep the winter away.
January 15 - Martin Luther King, Jr. Day: The Museum will be open on this special Monday as we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. King. Join us for the story Martin Luther King, Jr. by Marion Dane Bauer, followed by an experiment and crafts.
January 20 & 21 - Animal Tracks: What kind of animals do you have in your backyard? We'll read the story When It Starts to Snow by Phillis Gershator and then learn how to identify tracks in the snow.
January 27 & 28 - Over in the Arctic: Discover some animals that thrive in the cold and find out how they keep themselves warm.
