Wee Wonders at the National Children's Museum Launch Zone

The National Children's Museum (NCM) invites you to participate in Wee Wonders at the Launch Zone at National Harbor!

You can practically create your own preschool for your toddler with the help of the National Children's Museum and their Wee Wonders program. Each month, the NCM is offering programs on a different theme for children ages 2-3. According to the NCM, "these fun, fast-paced learning events typically include stories, games, art, music, experiments, drama, and movement around a different theme."

Please note: each month the same program is offered multiple times. But knowing how much my own son loved repetition as a toddler, you may want to visit more than once a month!

Here's the schedule and a short description provided by the National Children's Museum. Programs take place from 10am-11:15am on the dates listed below.

September 15, 22, and 29: Wee Wonders' Remarkable Rivers
With a beautiful view of the Potomac, the Launch Zone is the perfect spot to introduce your wee ones to everything fun about rivers! Explore river animals, fish, boats, and the properties of water alongside your young child in this exciting program.

October 6, 13, and 20: Wee Wonders' Sense-ational!
Children will begin to understand how their bodies work by investigating their five fabulous senses. Explore smells, textures, sounds, sights, and tastes with your toddler.

November 3, 10, and 17: Wee Wonders' Fall at the Farm
It's harvest time at the pretend NCM farm! Little farmers will tend to pretend animals and crops and celebrate nature's autumn surprises. Explore apples, pumpkins, and farm animals.

December 1, 8, and 15: Wee Wonders' Winter Wonderland
Discover what happens during the winter including winter weather, ice and snow, and how different animals adapt to the changing season.
