A New Year’s Eve Favorite: Bubble Bash@DCM!

Come one, come all! DuPage Children's Museum (DCM) is eagerly preparing for its very own countdown to noon! Bubble Bash takes place on December 31, 2013 from 9am until 12:00 p.m., NOON. Celebrating while engaging in meaningful activities that come to life through learning opportunities exemplary of every program at DCM is what this event is about! 

Three floors of bubble fun will provide activity and discovery around every turn.  Headlining will be toe-tapping, kid focused musical performances from Chicago-area favorite Mr. Singer and the Sharp Cookies!  Check out the band in this video

Activities will include...drum roll please...

Build it Big: Two large building activities will target construction and engineering skills geared for younger and older children. Working with the Director of Exhibits and the Exhibits Manager, older children will use special rivets to erect an enormous cardboard bridge. Younger children will use paper and tape to discover the strength in rolled paper and how it may be used in construction.

Big Bubbly Ocean: Collage an underwater vision of the sea to take home. Like the small fish banding together in the famous book Swimmy by Lio Lionni, small artworks added together will form a huge sea of color. 

Big Bubble Balloon Mural: While not the most educational experience in the lot, who would not want to throw paint filled balloons at a large canvas? Yes, we will talk about force, angle, trajectory, and color mixing … but this is about fun, too. 

Wait! There’s more!
·         Pop your way down the red carpet
·         Create a bubble anaconda—blowing gigantic bubble chains
·         Catch gas-filled bubbles—also known as Boo Bubbles

FINALLY!  Join Mayor Pradel in the official countdown; 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…Hope to see you there! Make your reservation now for the BIGGEST and BUBBLIEST family New Year’s Eve celebration we’ve ever had!
