WTTW Kids BIG IDEA Tour

BIG IDEA tour brings the BIG IDEA Traveling Lab to communities throughout Chicagoland! Join us for an exciting 45-minute FREE live show, perfect for children 2 to 7 years old, bringing to life the fun and learning from WTTW Kids’ most popular and beloved children’s shows.

Hosted by the WTTW Kids Lab Guys, children will be inspired to discover their own BIG IDEAS using our very own recipe of Wonder, Watch & Learn More! The exciting show will engage kids to explore themes like emotions, life cycles, recycling, the natural world, and more as we discover everyday BIG IDEAS. We’ll also learn about great children’s books that support the show’s themes and experience a few fun surprises along the way. Some shows will include a character Meet & Greet following the performance.

What’s the BIG IDEA?

A BIG IDEA is a solution to a problem, an answer to a question, or something that has opened your mind to a new understanding. When you’re a kid, the world is full of new things to learn. BIG IDEAs help us to solve every day conundrums, large and small.

What’s the recipe for a BIG IDEA?

  • WONDER: A question in your mind or a curiosity to learn more.
  • WATCH: Observe how something is done or how it works. Absorb information and consider the possibilities.
  • LEARN MORE: Read a book, watch a video, visit a library or a zoo, or talk with someone who might have more information to share.

Then, voila! You have a BIG IDEA!
