Aquatots: Slippery to Prickly

This Aquatots program focuses on one of our senses, the sense of touch.

Come to the Aquarium to introduce your little one to marine life. Another in our series of parent, me, and fish classes, the Aquatots program is created for two- or three-year-olds with an adult. Join us for the entire series of 6 classes!

These classes are designed for you and your child to interact together in a fun and dynamic learning environment. We therefore strongly encourage you to leave children not in this age group at home. These classes do not offer snacks. Admission is included.

Slippery to Prickly: Let’s focus on our sense of touch as we explore slippery slugs, prickly sea urchins, and more! Your toddler already wants to touch everything, bring him to a program where touching is encouraged! During this 1 ½ hour program, you and your two- to three-year-old child will:

  • Touch animals in our private classroom touch pool
  • Create a fun, ocean themed craft to take home
  • Take a guided tour of our Northern Pacific gallery

Other activities may include:

  • Become touch detectives and identify objects using only our sense of touch
  • Touch a wide variety of animal artifacts including sea otter fur, whale teeth, shells, and more
  • Read a story about a hermit crab looking for a good home

Then stay after class to revisit your favorite exhibits, admission is included!
