Looking for inspiration?

At the Children’s Museum of South Dakota, we believe that the power of play can follow you wherever you go.

Even though our physical building is not open to the public, our team has been working hard creating activities and content to inspire you to spark your imagination through play, creativity, and discovery!

Here are a few resources to get you started: 

Play at Home Kit:

Our education team developed a series of kits that feature the most popular activities from our classes and camps. Each themed kit, designed for preschoolers on up, features 5 activities plus bonus materials. Each purchase supports our mission!

Virtual Classes:

Stay tuned to our calendar where STEAM Challenges and Take-n-Make virtual class opportunities get added regularly. Explore art, science, technology, and more! Classes take place on Zoom. Our educators are pros at engaging young minds. It is so much fun!

Buy Your Own Big Blue Blocks:

Through June 30, Imagination Playground is offering a specially curated 100 piece set of their tabletop size Small Blue Blocks geared toward home use and they will donate $10 to the Children’s Museum of South Dakota for each set purchased.
