First Lady Visits Louisiana Children’s Museum Eat, Sleep, Play Program
On Tuesday, Nov. 1, First Lady Michelle Obama visited one of LCM’s three Eat, Sleep, Play sites, Royal Castle Child Development Center, where she read to participating families and joine
d in movement exercises.
Eat, Sleep, Play was launched in the Greater New Orleans area by The Louisiana Children’s Mu
seum in the spring of 2011 and is an 11-week, interactive, family health and wellness series to combat childhood obesity.
This program is made possible through the generous support of Blue Cross Blue Shield of
Louisiana Foundation and the Children’s Museum of Manhattan.
Eat, Sleep, Play is also a part of a national initiative developed by Children’s Museum of Manhattan and is illustrative of one way that the Louisiana Children’s Museum has embraced Mrs. Obama’s Let’s Move Museums and Gardens initiative.
Behind the Big Blue Doors is the Museum’s newest online series all of the fun that occurs inside our big blue doors. Created by Ron Palmer, one of the Museum’s playworkers, Behind the Big Blue Doors has taken Facebook and Youtube by storm.
