Be a Counselor: Be Anything!/See it. Be it. Virtual Career Days
Jun 4 @ 10:00 am – 10:30 am

This week we are learning how to be a counselor with Derrick Booth, a guidance counselor at Peoria Public Schools.

Watch this Virtual Career Day on our Facebook page or YouTube channel.

Virtual Career Days are a partnership between Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum’s Be Anything! program and Peoria Public Schools Foundation’s See It. Be It.

The Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum’s Be Anything! is an innovative program that propels “Take Your Child to Work Day” to a new level. Help a child in your life explore the careers that excite them. Learn more about Be Anything! here.

Peoria Public Schools Foundation’s See It. Be It. career exploration program drives student excitement and interest in career options through experiences with working professionals. Students in K – 5th grade meet face-to-face with people in various occupations to learn about jobs and the corresponding skill sets required to be successful in a career. Simply, if they can See It, they can Be It.

Birthday Bash: Art Auction
Jun 5 – Jun 12 all-day

The Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum encourages children to tinker, innovate, and imagine new things as young makers. In celebration of our 5th birthday, we are hosting an art auction to support local makers and artists through these times. 50% of all proceeds will go to the artist who created the piece.

Bidding information will be coming soon. Thank you for supporting local makers, big and small!


Birthday Bash: Virtual Dance Party!
Jun 12 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

The PlayHouse turns 5 this year!  Our celebration may look different than we expected this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have a party! Join us for a virtual dance party on Friday June 12th, where we will be joined via Zoom by community members to teach us how they dance, like Peoria Ballet and Peoria Area Performing Arts Studio (PAPAS).

This 90 minute dance party is free to participate, but we encourage you to donate an amount with a “5” in it, in honor of our 5th birthday. Those who donate $5 or more will receive an exclusive PlayHouse Party Pack that includes the PlayHouse’s favorite cupcake recipe, instructions for making your own party hat, and more!
