Winter Wonderland

Discovery Place Kids Rockingham

From winter animals to winter science, we’re exploring all the season has to offer this month at Discovery Place Kids.

Throughout January, discover the polar regions and learn how animals protect themselves from the ice and cold. We'll use a variety of stories, crafts, science experiments and art projects to make learning fun for kids and families.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, cuddle up for one of our favorite stories, The Mitten. We'll examine animal furs and learn about hibernation. On Wednesdays and Fridays, learn about animals who live in the chilly polar regions and find out how they have evolved to survive life in the deep cold.

Additional activities this month include:

January 13 & 14: Winter Science Lab - Experiment with snow, ice and states of matter.

January 15: Martin Luther King, Jr. - The Museum will be open on this special Monday as we celebrate the life of Dr. King with a special family story time.

January 20 & 21: Igloo Engineers - Put your engineering skills to the test and help us build an igloo that would keep out the cold winter weather.

January 27 & 28: Liquid Nitrogen - Did you know that liquid nitrogen can reach temperatures as low as -320 degrees Fahrenheit? We'll safely experiment with different objects and this freezing liquid.
