All around the world, kids play! Celebrate the Worldwide Day of Play with an African Playground experience on Saturday, September 14 at 10:30, then make a Kenyan flag at 1:30 at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center. In African Playground, Kansas City Young Audiences will share some of the games, dances, and music of Eastern Africa to help us discover the role these activities play in the everyday lives of African children. African Playground is generously sponsored by the Blanche Bryden Foundation.
This program is offered as part of Kenya’s Kids, a new cultural exhibit where families can discover what life is like for children in Kenya today, a country both technologically-advanced and filled with longtime traditions. Kenya’s Kids magically transports visitors into the lives of children living in Kenya, bringing the experience to life to encourage children to not just learn about, but also participate in a new culture as they travel through five immersive environments. Kenya’s Kids is open at the Discovery Center from September 13, 2019 to January 4, 2020.
Regular admission applies, which is $7.75 for children and adults, $6.75 for seniors, and free for infants under 12 months and Discovery Center members. Admission also lets you play all day at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center with over 15,000 square feet of indoor educational exhibits exploring science, careers, art, building and more, plus a 4.5 acre certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom.
