For Educators

My Hands

Toddler Outreach, My Hands allows children to explore science, create, build, and manipulate materials. This is a 45 minute program that can accommodate up to 15 toddlers, ages 18-36 months. It consists of an interactive-read aloud, group activity, and hands-on activities. All activities are developmentally appropriate and encourage both fine and gross motor skills.

During the group demonstration the following science concepts and more will be explored:

  • Texture of natural materials
  • Light and color
  • Measuring and pouring

Children will be able to freely explore the activity centers to learn more about science. Children will be able to explore sensory activities where they can change the materials by adding color and other elements. Through these activities children can explore different textures and use their creativity to guide their explorations. They can also use fine motor skills to experiment with light and see how light can shine through materials.


Programs are $100 for the first session and $75 for each additional session (same topic and same day). Up to four sessions of one topic can be held in one day. Schools wanting to do two different topics can do 1 session of each per day. For schools with time constraints and more than three classrooms, COSI can provide a three-hour block of time for to do four shortened 30 minute sessions (with 15 minutes to reset between each one) for $275.
