Run, jump, or skip over to the National Museum of Play at The Strong® during Let’s Move! School-Break Week from Saturday, December 22 to Monday, December 31. Pick up a Let’s Move! activity guide at the museum’s admission desk and move your way through a variety of physical challenges amid the interactive exhibits.

Go mountaineering on the climbing wall or move to the beat on Dance Dance Revolution in Field of Play, shop for colorful veggies in Super Kids Market,  and enjoy Let’s Move! computer games courtesy of the Democrat and Chronicle.

Also, get your body moving in the Dora & Diego—Let’s Explore! exhibit, open only through January 6, 2013. Children climb, crawl, jump, and learn in playfully engaging Rainforest environments. Swing from the monkey bars, traverse a climbing wall, crawl through a log, climb up the Purple Planet, and plant flowers in Isa’s Garden.

Activities are presented in conjunction with the Let’s Move! Museums and Gardens Initiative launched by First Lady Michelle Obama and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to fight childhood obesity.

All Let’s Move! School-Break Week activities are included with general admission fees.
