Once Upon A Farm at Omaha Children's Museum | Family Fun in Omaha

Once Upon A Farm continues through April 12th!

Experience farm life in the city! The Omaha Children’s Museum latest special exhibit, Once Upon a Farm, offers a variety of fun and interactive activities to help children explore the world of agriculture.

My kids love this exhibit! The Children’s Museum always creates wonderful activities where children are actively engaged in play and also learning at the same time! Children love climbing in the 2 story worm wall, a popular activity that has returned from other special exhibits, and driving around the pedal track maze on mini tractors and trikes, and filling up on gas! The huge combine invites them to climb in and explore what it would be like to drive one.

combine

I love how Once Upon a Farm ties to the agricultural foundation of Nebraska and how the Omaha Children’s Museum involves partners from across the community and the state to help create the exhibit. See my full review here!

Daily Programming:
Farm Life: (Tuesday – Saturday 10:30 a.m. & 2:30 p.m.; Sunday 2:30 p.m.)

Zen Ties Opens at The Rose Theater + Giveaway (Ended)

Pinterest

ZenTies-2

The World Premiere of Zen Ties opens this weekend at The Rose Theater Omaha!

Zen Ties tells the story of two friendly pandas. Koo the Panda comes to visit her Uncle Stillwater, and Stillwater soon learns that Koo has quite the gift of gab. He offers her a special challenge: LISTEN. In the quiet, Koo and Stillwater discover people are not always what they seem. With Stillwater’s positive influence, children in the neighborhood learn there may be more to mean old Mrs. Whittaker’s story than they thought.

ZenTies-1

In a gentle tale about patience and compassion, Zen Ties imparts universal lessons of wisdom and mindfulness. The play is a disarming story of compassion and friendship that reaffirms the importance of our connection to others. “This play has a gentle touch, a very loving touch,” says guest director, Jessie J. Jou. “The spirit of the play, as embodied in the title, is about the ties we have with each other.”
