The Arizona Museum of Natural History (AzMNH), 53 N. Macdonald in Mesa, is hosting “Dino Preschool Party” on Friday, March 10, from 5:30–7:30 p.m.
This lively program is sponsored by First Things First and is free, however, everyone must come with a preschooler between the ages of 0–5 years. Free admission is limited to the first 1,000 participants.
Fun activities focus on families learning together and school readiness. For example, at the Dino Might Station everyone gets to touch and explore dinosaur teeth and related feeding strategies. Plus, the Dino Preschool Party will include Dino Dancing, Scavenger Hunt and crafts. Adult participants will have the opportunity to teach their children and model learning as fun.
“The Dino Preschool Party promotes families playing, learning and exploring together,” said Kathy Eastman, curator of education at the Arizona Museum of Natural History. “By age 5, 90 percent of a child’s critical brain development has occurred. Parents and caregivers are a child’s best teachers–come spend quality time with your preschooler at the Dino Preschool Party!”
Registration is not required, but remember to bring your preschooler and be among the first 1,000 participants. For more information on all programs, visit: AzMNH.org.
