Curious George™: Let’s Get Curious!
EXHIBITING THROUGH MAY 14
Spark curiosity and early learning at the traveling exhibit currently at The Woodlands Children's Museum. Curious George™: Let’s Get Curious! allows for young children to learn and play imaginatively while entering the world of the beloved book character and his friend, The Man in the Yellow Hat.
Insider Tip: Most of the signage for this exhibit is also in Spanish! The exhibit easily serves both Spanish and English readers and encourages bilingual literacy.
Have an architect in the family? The construction site is the perfect exhibit piece to teach children about what they do! Complete with a drafting table, this area allows children to draw and create their own blueprints. Afterward, they can don a construction hat and safety vest to begin building, by using the hand-cranked conveyor belt to move blocks up. The fun doesn't stop there, use the oversized construction materials to build a fort!
Make a stop by the produce stand and play shopper or salesperson! After sorting and weighing the produce, the shoppers can check out with the cashier. Both the customer and salesperson can sort and count the fruits and vegetables while interacting with one another.
Use pipes, bumpers, and ramps to experiment with physics and engineering as you play through two holes of mini-golf!
Head out to the country and visit the farm. Care for the animals and learn about cause and effect by using wind power. Children can play with wind machines to see which items they can move.
Take a break with a walk in the City Park. This urban green space is much like some of the parks you can find in The Woodlands! Relax on the bench or stop to hug and take a photo with Curious George.
