At The Iowa Children’s Museum we love to play!  Our PLAYologists all participate in a self-reflection exercise and think about how they play while on the floor of the museum. Are they silly, curious, boisterous, creative, focused…? Once they have thought about their play style, our PLAYologists create their Play Alter Ego.  This is a character (with costumes, accessories and an awesome name) that represents how they play.  The staff will wear a button of their Play Alter Ego to spark questions and playful interactions while on the floor.  Ask us about them next time you come play!
