Ice Explorations! (Sensory Friendly Playdate)

Explore the properties of water and ice through melting ice experiments and water play. Use new tools to shave ice and enjoy a cool treat on us. Allergy Notice: fresh fruit extract will be used as flavoring for the ice treat.

 Sensory Playdates aim to bring families together to learn and discover the wonder of science in an environment that supports the unique needs of children with differences.



Activities are designed for children, ages 4–7, with autism spectrum disorder and their parents and siblings.



These free playdates provide opportunities to enjoy family time at the museum in a welcoming, safe and understanding environment, allow parents to network with one another, and help families discover the wonder of science learning together.


Materials will include visual schedule and a social story. Snacks will be provided, but you are welcome to bring a snack to enjoy with your family.
