Now Showing - Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action
September 30, 2017 through January 15, 2018
Health and wellness may sound like serious topics, but Creative Discovery Museum is making them seriously fun with its next traveling exhibit, Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action™! This exhibit, created by Minnesota Children’s Museum, invites children and adults to explore activities such as kung fu, surfing, snowboarding, yoga and horizontal climbing. The primary goal of the exhibit is to get kids into action by playing and doing things they like to do. The exhibit opens September 30, 2017 and runs through January 15, 2018,
Featuring the theme of action adventures popular in children’s books and movies, the homegrown exhibition invites visitors to jump into “Action Star Training” – play activities that build strength, coordination, balance and endurance.
Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action encourages visitors to try out activities they may have never before encountered and also revisit familiar activities in new ways. Cultural spotlights and real-life stories of young people and families who are passionate about a particular activity will deepen visitors’ motivation to get into action. As visitors move through the exhibit and have fun with physical activity, they will get ideas for how they can become more active daily.
Throughout the exhibit, kids and accompanying adults stamp the activities they tried on Action Trackers. Visitors can also take home 3-Day Mission Action Tracker – activity logs that encourage people to get physically active for a total of 60 minutes a day.
The exhibit aims primarily at children ages 5-12, while children 2-5 will also be able to join in the fun at many of the activities. Additionally, Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action developers worked to make the exhibit activities accessible to visitors with varying physical abilities and developmental needs.
Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action was created by the Minnesota Children's Museum.
