Explore with Shaun and Pals Starting Saturday, January 21
Shaun the Sheep™: Flock This Way!, an interactive exhibit based on the popular film and television character, will open at Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh on Saturday, January 21, 2023, and run through April 30, 2023.
In this hands-on exhibit, visitors 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! builds on problem-solving themes in fun, engaging ways. Exhibit components and activities encourage children to playfully explore themes around problem-solving and resilience in a safe and lighthearted manner and aims to make the problem-solving process explicit.
“We’re excited to present an exhibit that combines social-emotional and STEM-based learning with adventures and problem solving alongside such beloved characters,” says Anne Fullenkamp, Senior Director of Design at Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.
Here is some of what you can do in the exhibit:
- Get busy in the barn by hopping on balance boards, traversing the wall and balancing on tires
- Throw on your favorite “championsheep” inspired costume
- Figure out the rules of the farm to fill the farmhouse windows
- Mix up Bitzer’s face to create new facial expressions
- Rescue one of the flock who’s stuck in the top of a tree
- Create a stop motion animation using items from the scrap heap
- Hop into a truck and pretend to drive to the village
- Grab a sheep seat and cozy up to read a book
