Discovery Green Blog: Toddler Tuesdays is Back at Discovery Green!

One of the most beloved series at Discovery Green is Toddler Tuesdays. Happening at 10:30 am every Tuesday from March 24 – May 26, 2015, Toddler Tuesdays invites parents, grandparents and baby sitters to bring their young ones to the park for story time, activities and more! Kids get outdoors, be social and exercise their minds and bodies alike. Toddler Tuesday is part of the Families and Children Series presented by Shell.   

We’ve asked Toddler Tuesdays organizer extraordinaire Lori Ann San Miguel a few questions about this upcoming season. Read on to learn more, and we’ll see you on Tuesdays!  

Q: What can children and parents expect this season at Toddler Tuesdays?
A: This season parents can expect tons of fun! We are excited to present our fourth annual egg hunt, guest readers, special appearances by kids’ favorite characters (who are making their Discovery Green debut), three of the sweetest and cutest little monkeys I have ever seen, a program on the culture of Cinco de Mayo, the always-popular foam parties and more! 

Q: Who are some of the guest readers you’ve invited to join in on the fun? 
A: Sheriff Adrian Garcia, KHOU Channel 11’s Chita Johnson and some of the talented staff from Theatre Under the Stars, just to name a few. 

Q: Can you tell us more about your partnership with the UH Cognitive Learning Lab?  A: Early childhood is a time of remarkable psychological, physical and social development. The UH Cognitive Lab has been a wonderful partner in helping us continue to create more ways to make learning fun for babies and toddlers. As such, Toddler Tuesdays and other Discovery Green programs are designed to supplement children’s development.   

Q: Tell us about why Toddler Tuesdays is important to you.
 A: Toddler Tuesdays is by far my favorite event here at Discovery Green. Since its creation, I have watched babies grow into the most amazing toddlers. Knowing that we played a small role in preparing them for their early school years puts the biggest smile on my face and warms my heart. These babies and toddlers and their families become an integral part of the Discovery Green family!
