veland, Ohio – April 20, 2015 –The Children’s Museum of Cleveland is proud to announce the opening of its spring seasonal exhibit, “Healthier Ever After: Learning to Live Healthier through Imaginative Play” on Saturday, April 25, 2015. The exhibit is scheduled to be on display through August 31, 2015. Developed by The Children’s Museum of Cleveland “Healthier Ever After” is an interactive, immersive fairytale forest. Children must maneuver through this make-believe forest overcoming obstacles as they exercise their bodies and learn healthy nutrition facts in a fun, playful manner. In doing so, everyone experiencing this exhibit will learn to live “healthier ever after.”
- Stretching Station – Begin your journey by warming and stretching your muscles. Here children (and adults) can do jumping jacks, trunk twists, arm windmills, and more!
- Move & Groove Meadow – Get your body moving by dancing, shaking, shimmying, jumping and skipping to high-energy tunes.
- Crocodile Crossing – Children will test their balance as they cross an imaginary creek, all the while avoiding the crocs by walking on beams or hopping and jumping across stepping stones.
- Pedal Pond – Strength and endurance are the focus of this component. Children will paddle a boat, cross a bridge, and when completed, can cast a line into the pond and try their hand at catching a fish.
- Healthier Ever After Castle – While exploring the nearly 10-foot high, 2-story castle, children will get their hearts pumping as they climb stairs, jump over a bridge, go down a slide and raise a flag signaling their successful completion of all the castle challenges.
- Goodness Grove – Between five and nine servings of fruits and vegetables are recommended every day. In this make-believe orchard, children can pick, choose and sort their favorites as they eat their way through the alphabet.
Additional components will teach children about how to eat a balanced meal, the food pyramid, the bodies need for water, and proper portion sizes.
