We Need A Trailer!

We’re so excited to be making our first public appearance on Friday, May 12th at Food Truck Friday at Campbell Park in Clive!  We hope to see you there for food, music, and a chance to check out part of our summer traveling exhibit, “Let’s Play Outside!”  We’ll have our play campsite, a water table, and a garden sensory table for the kids to enjoy, and Julie and I will be there to answer questions.

Why only part of the exhibit, not the whole thing? Because it turns out our ideas are much bigger than our minivans.  We’ve had such a great response on social media, and so much interest from events wanting to host our exhibit, that we’ve expanded our plans enough that we need a trailer to haul it all!   We’ll be doing several events over the next few weeks with different parts of the exhibit, which brings us to our big news:

Mark your calendars for June 9th, from 4:30-6:30!  We’ll be having a launch party and fundraiser in partnership with the Heritage Carousel in Union Park!  Plan to join us to ride the wonderful Heritage Carousel, and to see “Let’s Play Outside!” all together for the very first time!  We’ll be raising money for a trailer, and celebrating the beginning of a very exciting summer!  We’ll have more details out soon!

 

Survey Results!

In the last 11 days, 705 of you have taken our survey.  Without further ado, here are the results!

Almost 90% of our survey-takers have visited a Children’s Museum before.  I suppose it isn’t too surprising that people who would take our survey overlap quite a bit with children’s museum visitors.  We have lots of interest from people who have visited children’s museums, we’ll need to expand our audience to those who haven’t by showing them how wonderful a children’s museum can be!
