This festive celebration, taking place on the lower level near Sears, includes free goody bags for the first 100 kids to arrive, along with plenty of free fun.
In addition to a light breakfast, kids will enjoy a meet and greet with Clifford the Big Red Dog, hands-on craft activities, pretzel rolling, an energetic tumbling demonstration and more. St. Luke’s Hospital will present pre-school yoga as well as nutrition games designed to give children a head start on healthy eating.
“The St. Luke’s Hospital Play Area at Chesterfield Mall is a great new space for local families,” said Dr. Elizabeth Lucas, St. Luke’s Urgent Care medical director. “Not only does it provide a fun, safe diversion for little ones during family shopping trips, it’s also an opportunity for the children to learn healthy habits by exercising and getting some good health tips along the way.”
Of course, plenty of healthy play will be in store at the newly renovated St. Luke’s Hospital Play Area featuring bright, sturdy structures perfect for climbing and exploring. Parents and caregivers can supervise all the action from comfortable plush seating surrounding the space.
The Play Area grand opening is free and reservations are not required. Parents are welcome to bring cameras to capture the smiles. So, bring the kids, relatives and friends to the new St. Luke’s Hospital play area on the lower level of Chesterfield Mall near Sears on Sept. 14 from 10 a.m. to noon for fun-filled activities free-of-charge.
