Learn with Lakeshore | BellaBoo's

Join us for another Learn with Lakeshore event on July 21st from 11-4 pm at Bellaboos Children Play & Discovery Center (2800 Colorado St, Lake Station, IN. 46405). Last year, we had over 500 attendees, 15 nonprofit organizations with tables and activities plus the PNC Mobile Learning Adventure.

The PNC Mobile Learning Adventure (MLA), is an educational exhibit that encourages children and caregivers to engage in unique, interactive activities to fuel early learning. The exhibit includes a variety of activities, including an opportunity for children to imagine their future careers.

Costume character Super Grover from Seseame Street will be joining the fun! Kids are more then welcome to come say hi and take their photo with Grover himself!
