Children in our community feel what’s happening. The museum’s belief statement above “We believe in creating a safe and inclusive space in the Akron Community for all children and families” represents our commitment to fostering spaces where children and families feel comfortable learning through play. Play reduces anxiety and brings people together.
During this historical time in our country, our team is leaning into the value we place in children being able to express their feelings about all they may be seeing and hearing. The “Feel” in the Blanks game uses question cards, a list of emotions, and dice to facilitate social and emotional learning in children while serving two important purposes. It’s an interactive and fun format that is great for small groups, families, and children ages 5 to adult and every purchase supports museum operations! These card packs make great “thinking about you” gifts!
