Families can “Flock this Way” and explore Children Museum of Atlanta’s newest exhibit, Shaun the Sheep™: Flock This Way!, opening Saturday, May 13. The new exhibit, based on the popular film and television character, builds on problem-solving themes in fun, engaging ways. Created by Minnesota Children’s Museum in partnership with Aardman, the exhibit runs through Sept. 4.
Visitors will explore the antics of Shaun the Sheep and his pals on Mossy Bottom Farm. Designed for children ages 3 through 9, Shaun the Sheep: Flock This Way! has components and activities that encourage children to playfully explore themes around problem-solving and resilience in a safe and lighthearted manner and aims to make the analytical process explicit. Also included is a “tot spot” specifically for children under 3.
While exploring the farm, children will be encouraged to get active in the barn by hopping on balance boards, traversing the wall and balancing on tires; figure out the rules of the farm to fill the farmhouse windows; rescue the flock who is stuck in the top of a tree, create a stop motion animation using items from the scrap heap, mix up Bitzer’s face to reveal new facial expressions; hop into a truck and “drive” to the village and more!
