The Newport Beach Nautical Museum has a great class just for you and your toddler which includes story-time, songs and play while discovering the wonders of the sea! Their interactive early childhood program (ages 2-5) presented in the Sea of Adventure exhibit includes crafts, touch tanks, and a gallery tour. Each Sea Tales has a unique marine theme for children to discover.
They also do Birthday Parties! Their Sea Tales themed birthday parties are available for groups of up to 30 people. They have 6 different themes to choose from. The program typically lasts up to 2 hours and includes a sign-in name tag making session, storybook time, an outside activity such as sidewalk chalk or bubbles, a craft, and then a trip to the touch tank.
Be sure to make reservations early for the pirates in your family, since this program has limited space. Parties are typically booked at least 2 weeks in advance, depending on availability.
