Meet us at the top of the coconut tree October 5-14 at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center! On Wednesdays and Fridays at 10 a.m. and Saturday at 1 p.m. we’ll be celebrating Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. as part of Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites, a special exhibit at the Discovery Center through January 2, 2023. Storyland immerses children and adults in favorite picture books. In the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom section of the exhibit, children can explore the alphabet and letter and sound awareness while navigating three tropical islands featured in this classic children’s book. Families will also enjoy creating rhythms with steel drums while playing along with the rhythm of the story. Kids can sort and match uppercase and lowercase letters, climb and play amongst giant letter sculptures, and more.
Regular admission applies. Admission also lets you play all day at the Discovery Center with over 15,000 square feet of indoor educational exhibits exploring science, careers, art, building and more, a 4.5 acre certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom and special space for babies and toddlers to explore.
