Playing grown-up can be a rewarding way to explore potential careers and transportation options beyond crawling for people who drink their coffee out of a non-sippy cup. Share the excitement of kids’ still-malleable futures with today’s Groupon to the Move It! Dig It! Do It! event from the Iowa Children’s Museum, taking place at the Iowa River Landing in Coralville on September 18 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Choose from the following options:
- For $7, you get two admissions (up to a $14 value).
- For $12, you get four admissions (up to a $28 value).
An award-winning organization, the Iowa Children’s Museum engages and expands the imaginations of youngsters with interactive exhibits and hands-on programs. The Move It! Dig It! Do It! event invites pintsized minds to stretch themselves around the enormous equipment wielded by construction professionals, farmers, and bus drivers, and then witness how each vehicle fits into the next to defend the galaxy as Voltron. More than 40 activities and machines ensure all-day entertainment. Tots can scramble into the driver’s seat of a fire truck for a hero’s-eye view of the engine’s three-alarm chili dispenser or enjoy a haystack ride. Create your own cement garden stone before retiring to the Volunteer Guild’s Dig It! Café for purchasable snacks and water divvied up out from under a big tent.
