Spring break is in full swing at Miami Children’s Museum, with programming to keep curious children excited and engaged all season long. Now through April, guests will enjoy activities like a Glow Party March 25 and 26, complete with black light wall painting; a sensory-friendly silent disco party April 8; an Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Fling April 9; and an Earth Day Extravaganza April 22.
The fun kicks off March 25 and 26 at the museum’s Glow Party, a festive conclusion to spring break with all things that glow. Make your mark on the black light wall painting, pop into the museum’s Art Studio to decorate a costume mask using glow-in-the-dark paint markers, and experiment with a glowing science activity. Then, join the Glow Party in the auditorium, complete with dancing, games, and a light painting photo op.
Come April, the Miami Children’s Museum will celebrate Autism Acceptance Month. Throughout the month, the museum will host projects inspired by artists with Autism, whose neurodiversities have helped them create and accomplish incredible things. Featuring sensory inclusive activities, story times that empower children of all abilities, and more, the celebration has something for everyone. On April 8, the museum will host its first Sensory Friendly Saturday: Autism Acceptance Celebration & Dance Party, from 9 to 11 a.m. At the silent disco event, children can dance without being overwhelmed by loud music and big crowds.
Feel the festive spirit at the museum’s Spring Fling & Egg Hunt April 9. Children will dig into spring-inspired sensory bins, race through an egg and spoon obstacle course, and create egg-shaped art in the Art Studio. Participate in the Egg-cellent Egg Hunt and receive a goody bag. Egg Hunts will also contain “beep eggs” to create a more sensory friendly experience.
The season of fun concludes with an Earth Day Extravaganza April 22. Celebrate our planet with fun activities that teach about taking care of the environment, like Recycling Relay to learn which items belong in the trash and which can be recycled. Decorate your own pot and plant a seed that you can watch grow and join the Theater Troupe for their original performance of The Everwoods: A Wondrous Day to Wonder.
