Toddler Beach & Sandbox

Toddler Beach is a seaside themed exhibit designed for one to five year olds to climb, slide, explore and play! Children can climb up the dock stairs, walk along the peek-a-boo platform, then slide down the wave. Brightly colored ball drops allow children to mix and match drop spots and race the balls down the slide. A tunnel, mirror, and activity centers offer plenty of opportunities to name colors, sounds and patterns or stimulate the senses with buttons, textures and lights. The infant pool offers a safe space for non-walkers to play and interact all while watching the older children at work.

Have fun in the sand without the sunburn! Play in our indoor sandbox to explore the physics of motion, gravity, and flow. Funnels, shovels, sieves, and ramps allow for a variety of ways to explore.
