February 2014 – Labor Day 2014
New and Improved...and Ready for a National Tour
Enjoy updated versions of old favorites, such as riding a bike next to a skeleton, shopping for foods in the market and brushing a giant mouth, while new activities allow children to explore even more about fitness and nutrition. Study circulation and digestion, learn about go/slow/whoa foods, play food detective, get an up-close look at a giant nose, row a boat in tandem with a skeleton and create a warm up and cool down routine.
Children and adults will have hands-on opportunities to explore topics in ways that help them understand their bodies, understand the importance of making healthy choices and apply concepts in everyday situations. Eat smart, move more, live well!
Following it's debut at Stepping Stones Museum for Children, the new and improved Healthyville will travel to other children’s museums and science centers throughout the country, including the Boston Children’s Museum, the Minnesota Children’s Museum, the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose, the Bay Area Discovery Museum and the Long Island Children’s Museum.
