With KidsQuest’s summer hours starting on June 18, I thought you would like to see all the fun activities that will be going on this summer. All these activities are free with your membership or daily admission.

Sundays:
Soap Bubble Sunday 2-3pm: Join us outside as we explore beautiful, bouncing bubbles! Each week we will explore a different activity like making bubble wands or geometric bubble shape blowers, or creating bubbles bigger than your body. It’s fun in the sun with science!

Mondays:
Music Monday 11-12pm: Hum, sing, and dance your way through this hour-long exploration into music. Discover what makes a beat, how to strum a guitar, and more as we make music magical!

Inventor Hour 2-3pm:  Join us as we think outside the box and use creative problem solving to invent activities together. From rockets to bubbles to engineering tasks, we will do it all!
