We had a wonderful turnout for our first ever Stuffed Animal Sleepover last weekend, and we couldn't wait to show our loyal audience members all the fun! Our sleepover began on Friday night, when kiddos came to listen to a story, What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night by Refe and Susan Tuma. This event was open to all ages, as who doesn't love a good story and a little adventure.
After story time was over, the children left their stuffed animals with us for the night; we were promised all stuffed animals would be on their best behavior, but of course, they had a little mischief in the museum...but we are happy to report no stuffed animals were harmed during the night, and they all genuinely seemed to enjoy playing with all our exhibits!
Of course the animals enjoyed posing at our entrance and exploring our Emerald Coast Ecosystem room where they even met our resident stuffed animal, Squirt the Sea Turtle. After hanging out with Squirt, the stuffed animals decided they also wanted to become exhibits at the Science Center and snuck into a few of our display cabinets.
