TPT Adds Sensory-Friendly Hour to Second Saturdays Event

January 4, 2018

Sensory-Friendly Second Saturdays

TPT recognizes that families with disabled children are often inadvertently excluded from fun, family-friendly events. We want to help change that by introducing our sensory-friendly hour at Second Saturdays.

Haven’t heard of Second Saturdays?

Each month TPT opens up our studios in Lowertown St. Paul for a morning of PBS Kids cartoons on the big screen, meet & greets with PBS Kids characters like Daniel Tiger, Sid the Science Kid, and Buddy the Dinosaur, and fun activities like instrument making and carnival games.

If that weren’t enough, the SciGirls squad are always on hand with all sorts of STEM related games and activities to educate your child.

Want the icing on the cake? Second Saturdays is a free, family-friendly event. You can always show your support by including a donation to TPT with your RSVP, but it’s entirely optional.

What to expect from TPT’s Sensory-Friendly Second Saturdays

We want your family to feel relaxed and included. Expect lower volumes, lighting, and crowds. Instead of standing in line to meet your favorite PBS character, they will wander the room to say ‘hello’. Kids of all ages are welcome, and our space is entirely wheelchair accessible.

We’re always looking to improve! If you have any questions or concerns regarding our sensory-friendly events, please reach out to us at [email protected].

We hope to see you sometime soon! Check back at our sensory-friendly Second Saturdays event page to RSVP for the next event!
