KC Edventures Guide for Ages 3-5

Wonderscope Children's Museum

Let your child pretend to be a vet, a gardener, or a submarine commander.  Come play in a Lego® under-sea world, create art and shop at a kid-sized grocery store.  They’ll have such a great time, they won’t realize how much they are learning!

Before Your Visit:

  • Dress in comfy clothes - kids will probably get wet, and possible a little messy - all part of the fun!
  • Pack a snack as there's a cute indoor eating area.

Explore Wonderscope:

  • Lego Ocean Adventure - put on a divers suit and flippers and explore the underwater world.  See sharks, octopus and other cool marine life made from Legos.  Enter a Lego submarine to see how divers would live underwater - check out the bathroom and the kitchen!
  • Ready, Vet, Go - if you love animals, than explore what it would be like to be their doctor.  Kids can put on a vet coat and learn what's it's like to take care of a pet
  • Artworks - make a collage, a creative piece of artwork, or put on some facepaint!
  • Raceways - kids can learn about gravity and motion by playing with ramps, speed tracks and lots of balls.
  • Farm to Market - teach kids where our food comes from by letting them play at the 'farm' and 'garden'.  Harvet the food, deliver it to the store and then play cashier. 
  • Water Play Area (H2Oh!) - float boats through channels you create, see what sinks and floats and have fun with water tables.
  • Visit the animals - there's a place that kids can view small animals, like snakes and lizards.
