Toddler Time

Every Friday from 10:00am – 12:00noon

Toddler Time at the Great Lakes Children’s Museum is more popular than ever!

Toddlers interact with each other and learn through a variety of participatory games and special activities. Museum Educator Anne Drake leads fun-filled free-play activities designed for rapidly growing and developing toddlers, to encourage their natural curiosity, enhance their fine and gross motor skills, guide appropriate social behaviors, and facilitate essential cognitive growth.

No reservation is necessary to participate in Toddler Time; just drop in with your little one. (Our regular Museum fee of $6 applies, and anyone under age 2 is admitted free.)

Upcoming Toddler Time topics;

  • Wednesday, July 23 and Friday, July 25 - String-O-Mania (it’s about strings, macaroni and fun!)
  • Wednesday, July 30 and Friday, August 1 – Have a Ball! (motor skills and decision making to the max)
