Drop-In Programs

This fall the PlayHouse is offering three different drop-in programs each week. Enroll when you arrive at the PlayHouse; these programs are first-come first-serve!

Tot Time

Wednesdays, 10-11am, Ages 1-3. Cost: $1 per child with museum admission or membership.

During this program for children 1 to 3 years old and their grown-ups, children develop language, small motor skills, and social skills while engaging in hands-on exploration. Each class centers around a weekly theme and includes songs and musical instruments, a read-aloud story, time for play in the classroom and exploration in the museum, and a visual art activity.

For questions about Tot Time, please call our Family and Public Programs Educator, Adrienne Huffman, at 309-323-6894.

Yoga for kids

Mondays, 10-10:30am, October 1-November 5; All Ages. Cost: $2.50 per child with museum admission or membership.

Join Vickie from the RiverPlex and explore mindfulness through yoga, play, stories, and games. Everything in these classes can be easily adapted to enjoy at home, too!

Animal Encounters

Fridays, 10-10:30am, October 5-November 30; All Ages. Free with museum admission or membership.

Get up close to some cuddly, creepy, and crawly creatures! Meet live animals, and then visit the PlayHouse Nature Table and enjoy story time.
