The Importance of Play
At TWCM, we believe play is the key to life-long learning. Rather than being “just fun,” we recognize the important role of play in helping children achieve success as adults. Play fosters early childhood development by improving physical skills, communication skills, social/emotional skills, critical thinking, creativity, and cultural awareness. Our mission at the Museum is to create opportunities that educate, empower, and excite children and families through play while inspiring a lifelong sense of wonder and discovery.
The Museum is home to more than 15 fun, interactive exhibits that encourage creativity and imagination, foster fine motor development, and explore science and the arts. Our weekly activities include Science Madness, Crazy About Critters, Storybook Theater, Shadow Puppet Theater, Lego Time, Lego Read and Build, Boogie Bash, and other educational experiences for young children.
Several special events are also held each year to further excite and empower our young visitors. These events typically include entertainers, costumed characters, dancers, music, face painting, themed decor, art projects, and more. Our most popular events include:
- Chinese New Year
- Museum Birthday Celebration
- Super Hero Day
- Shake Your Summer Sillies Out
- Mad Hatter Tea Party
- Pancakes with Santa
- Mrs. Claus’ Gingerbread
- High Noon Countdown
Attendance at these events ranges from several hundred guests to over 1,000 visitors. The Museum’s special events offer our partners and sponsors a valuable opportunity to connect with young families in The Woodlands and surrounding areas.
