Get up, turn off your electronic devices and come on down to Stepping Stones Museum for Children for a free day of play on Saturday, October 6. In honor of Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play, Stepping Stones is hosting an action-packed day with free museum admission and activities throughout Mathews Park. The event will feature outdoor field games, interactive sports and fitness demonstrations, awesome educational activities and amazing live performances – all for free and guaranteed to keep your family moving.
Join Stepping Stones to celebrate what we do best – play. There will be magicians, jugglers, plate spinners and unicyclists. Children can tackle our special obstacle course, take a yoga, Zumba or martial arts class, participate in our field games, learn some golf skills, meet some of their favorite sports mascots from our local professional teams, dance the afternoon away at our rocking dance party featuring 4 different local bands, play a life-sized game of chess or check out a mock campsite while playing a unique hiking game. In addition, there will be plenty of experts on hand from the community and other sponsor organizations to provide ideas on ways families can take charge of their health.
Now in its 9th year, Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play is an entire day dedicated to active play. The day is part of a larger movement to reduce childhood obesity and reinforce lessons about the tremendous benefits of healthy lifestyles among children. Stepping Stones is proud to serve as a local host of this event for the fifth time.
“We are thrilled to be hosting our 5th Worldwide Day of Play event. As a children’s museum, we recognize and value the important role of play in a child’s development. We are also dedicated to helping the families that we serve maintain their commitment to healthy living. With our Healthyville exhibit, our increased emphasis on healthier options in our café, our tremendous array of special programming and our beautiful park location, Stepping Stones is truly the perfect stage for a spectacular day of health-based family fun,” said Rhonda Kiest, Executive Director of Stepping Stones Museum for Children.
