if you haven't made it over to Pretend City this month, it's time to go! this month Pretend City Children’s Museum has introduced a new interactive scavenger-haunt exhibit called the Bug Bog Scavenger Haunt! it runs now through October 31st, and is a small additional fee to the Pretend City admission price. i had the chance to take my littlest to check it out last week and he really enjoyed it. and i thought it was super cute and creative.
at the beginning of the scavenger haunt, Dr. Strangebug greets you, in his creepy lab and tells you about the adventure you are about to take. he's quite the character.
Dr. Strangebug then leads you on an adventure through eight dazzling and busy bug filled areas that engage children in discovering and learning about various insects and bugs.
i really like how each designated bug area has a them and different sensory activity to experience as you collect and gather the different kids of bugs and insects.
i thought the hole thing was adorable! (in a creepy buggy sort of way)
little Vann really enjoyed it and the scavenger hunt taught him how to matching skills and he got to experience different habitats that animals can live in. at the end of the eight different experiences, kids turn in their bug collections and receive a set of bug trading cards. there is also a surprise at the end....and section full of real live bugs to check out and explore (in cages thank goodness!) the scavenger hunt can take between 10-15 minutes....but you can do it over and over if you would like, so i think it is a great deal. so fun for Halloween.
