Spring Break Line-Up
Join us for a Superhero-Sized Spring Break Line-Up!
Throughout the week, visitors will be encouraged to stretch their muscles and their brains with hands-on activities, special guest workshops, exciting games, and full-body challenges.
Daily throughout Spring Break, our Program Interpreters and special guests will help participants learn about and acquire a different Superhero skill – from super speed, to super sight, and more. Come each day and watch your Superhero skills grow!
- Saturday March 26, 2022 & Sunday, March 27, 2022 | 11:00AM – 3:00PM
We’re kicking off our Superhero Spring Break Line-Up by practicing our strength and confidence with Innovative Martial Arts! We’ll learn about basic martial arts techniques and skills through drop-in programming in our Time Squared gallery. We’ll also have a daily craft to enjoy. Saturday we’ll create Superhero wrist cuffs and Sunday we’ll make ourselves a cool shield.
- Monday, March 28, 2022 | 11:00AM – 3:00PM
Secret computer stations, tricky hidden caves, and sneaky trapdoors – just a few elements a Superhero needs in their secret lair. Today we’ll get creative and build our very own Superhero Headquarters, complete with all these tricky traits – and more!
- Tuesday, March 29, 2022 | 11:00AM – 3:00PM
We all love a good Superhero movie – let’s make our own! Freeze Frame will be on hand with two animation stations to explore stop motion videos using their specialized equipment. They will also provide an optical toys workshop to learn how our brain and eyes work together.
- Wednesday, March 30, 2022 | 11:00AM – 3:00PM
Every Superhero needs to have a heightened sense of hearing. We’ll explore the power of sound in a Drumming Workshop with Barb Nepinak and learn about vibrations as we create a rhythmic craft to take home.
- Thursday, March 31, 2022 | 11:00AM – 3:00PM
Agility and flexibility are two traits that come in handy for a Superhero. Laura Kolisnyk will be onsite to stretch us into shape with kids’ Superhero yoga in Great Hall. We’ll also create some fun elastic Superheroes to take home.
- Friday, April 1, 2022 | 11:00AM – 1:00PM
Superpowers don’t only come in human form – animals have their own superpowers that help them navigate the world. Join Wildlife Haven and their animal ambassadors to learn more about animals’ superpowers, including super speed. A speedy running person is our daily craft.
- Saturday, April 2, 2022 | 11:00AM – 2:00PM
No Superhero is complete without the ability to disguise themselves. Manitoba Theatre for Young People will help us transform our appearance through body movements and some newly acquired acting skills. We’ll also create a sneaky mask that will really help us play the part!
- Sunday, April 3, 2022 | 11:00AM – 3:00PM
Our final day of Spring Break closes out with an adventure – in Lego! Brick Adventures is joining us with their Superhero-themed Lego and Duplo blocks, and we’ll build some creative contraptions. We’ll also create a landscape craft complete with mini flying Superheroes.
