Hooray for Leap Day!
February 29 4:30 PM

Fun is just a hop, skip and a jump away ... hooray for Leap Day! Leap Day only comes every four years and the museum celebrated the special occasion by holding various “leap” themed activities throughout the day.

The Imagination Playground was hopping with activity all morning long. First a lilypad beanbag toss took place followed by reading of Froggy’s First Kiss by Jonathan London.




The Creative Arts Center was jumping with excitement as children crafted frog puppets this afternoon.



There was also a Leap Day Backwards Scavenger Hunt! Participants followed clues to find the letters to discover the secret word of the day. After they unscrambled the letters, they could claim their prize. You can do the scavenger hunt with us at home! Can you find a letter in each of these photos to spell a TOAD-ally awesome leap day word?







Did you figure it out? "Hoppy" Leap Day from Omaha Children's Museum!
