    Grown-up Play Dates return to the Children’s Museum of NH
     
    Dover, NH (January 12, 2018) – “Play like a kid again,” is the motto of the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s after-hours Grown-up Play Dates. Throwback Thursday: Grown-up Play Dates is back after taking a break over the holidays and on Thursday, January 18, 7-9pm kids-at-heart ages 21+ can play, socialize, enjoy a cash bar and take some unique engineering challenges.
     
    “Engineer Some Fun” is the theme this month. “Remember the egg-drop challenge from High School?” asks Meredith Lamothe, CMNH Educator. “Well get ready to dust off those egg-saving skills, because we are going to be launching everyone’s egg contraptions off our second level ramp that night!” The museum will also challenge grown-ups to make mini catapults, K’nex windmills, play giant Jenga, and see who can build the tallest newspaper tower.
     
    7th Settlement Brewery is back with a cash bar and specialty drinks. “We had so much fun welcoming a new audience into the museum for the first two Grown-up Play Dates,” shared CMNH President Jane Bard. “Many people we talked to told us they’d never been to the museum before, but loved the idea and had a lot of fun. We hope they’ll come back this January and bring their engineering A-games!”
     
    The Grown-up Play Dates are part of a monthly series. February 15th is “Messy Mayhem: Paint Night” for the aspiring artists. March 15th is all about “Star Wars: A Brew Hope.” April 19th will be a chance to celebrate with “The ‘Way Back’ Birthday Bash” featuring classic party games. Pull out the tux for the May 17th “80s Prom” night. June 14th will be a “Kick-off To Summer Party” complete with tie-dye, and sandcastle contests.
     
    Guests must have a valid ID to attend. Tickets are on sale now online for $10 and are $12 at the door. Visit www.childrens-museum.org to learn more or to purchase tickets.
