KidScape can be a loud and exciting environment and sometimes that can be a challenge for children with sensory integration and processing needs. Developed in partnership with Infant Toddler Services of Johnson County, Sensory Time at the Museum is a free opportunity for these children and their families to experience the museum at their own pace before the museum opens to the public. ! Kids can pretend play while working on fine motor skills along with sensory integration activities such as: tactile fun and lacing in the Boutique, fishing and golfing in the Park, playing with echo microphones and practicing self-dressing skills with the costumes in the Theater, counting packages, carrying the heavy mail bag and delivering mail at the Post Office, cuddling and enjoying some quiet time as you read books in the Bookstore and exploring the interactive areas within the Museum’s signature exhibit Seeking the Good Life with fun seek-and-find-activity!
