In this play-based exhibit, children are invited to stretch their imaginations and explore the possibilities of pillows, blankets, dowels, fasteners, hooks, and a whimsical play space. The Hideaways exhibit consists of four sections of creative PLAY:
- The Biggest Bed: Climb, slide and hide on, under and around a fantastical bed built just for the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry by exhibit partners, Maxtrix® Kids Rooms, a locally owned and operated Children’s furniture store specializing in versatile solid wood Bunk and Loft Beds.
- Tents-sational!: Using dowels and stick-lets ® of many colors and sizes, kids can really go out on a limb fashioning tents in whatever size or shape catches their fancy.
- Hoop-houses: Hoops mounted from the ceiling change our perspective and multiply the possibilities of what and how we build – the sky (or at least the ceiling) is the limit!
- Toddler Spot: Little ones 3 and under have a special place to explore, play hide and seek, explore object permanence, and enjoy their own tiny hideaway.
Hideaways will be installed through August and is free for CML Members and CML ticket-holders. To purchase tickets for the Valentine’s Pajama Party, visit exploreCML.org/cml-events/valentine-party.
