Sensory Superstars

Join us on the third Sunday of each month!

We are excited to once again host Sensory Superstars on the third Sunday of each month. Families with children on the autism spectrum will be able to come safely play at the Building for Kids for FREE!

Only one family will be allowed in the museum at a time and we will have various time slots available throughout the day. To allow our team space and time for cleaning, families will limited to the exhibits on one floor of the museum.

There will not be a facilitated program. However, families will be able to take home an activity kit with the instructions and materials for a fun play dough activity.

Registration is required. To register, give us a call at 920-734-3226 ext. 110

Thank you to our supporters!
