Now that the school year is in full swing and you’ve settled in to your new routine, it’s time to find some activities to do with younger kiddos who are still at home. One option is Pre K Mondays at The Works Museum in Bloomington. It’s offered on two Mondays each month during the school year, October through May.
Pre K Mondays feature special activities just for kids ages 3 to 5 and their adult companions. It’s the perfect time for them to explore their curiosity and design, build, and create!
Kids get half price admission ($4.50) from 9 am – 12 pm. Grown-up admission is $9. Each Pre K Monday will include a special activity designed just for the youngest engineers and will be held in a “big kid free” location of the Museum. You’ll also be able to explore the Museum’s activity floor.
