Sandcastles launches interactive Lite Brite exhibit. 

LUDINGTON — Sandcastles Children’s Museum has opened a new exhibit, The Rainbow Room, just in time for Christmas.

The interactive Lite Brite features 391 lighted holes to create colorful designs with the acrylic pegs that come in 6 different colors. Visitors can create their own design or follow one of the templates provided.

The Rainbow Room, which houses the Lite Brite Board and the colorful bins of pegs, is not only aglow with color but offers so many learning skills for kids: color recognition, sorting, counting, practice with sight words, eye/hand coordination, patterning, and of course creativity.

“As with all our exhibits, we have added in as much educational information as possible,” said Kristin Korendyke, executive director. “The Rainbow Room will also teach our visitors about primary and secondary colors and color blending.

“We would like to thank our community partners for their assistance in building the Rainbow Room. A generous donation from Great Lakes Casting brought this from the idea phase to reality. North Woods Signs helped us throughout the design and fabrication process. Changeover Integration cut and beveled all those pegs. C&I Electric lit it up for us. Kathy Radtke added educational enrichment. And, from start to finish our wonderful exhibit builder Mark Todd made it happen. Thank you all for your support.”

Sandcastles is currently open Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.
