NORTHPARK & SOUTHPARK MALLS PARTNER WITH NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TO ENRICH THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES

-Kids Club To Offer More Fun, More Education Starting January 2013

DAVENPORT, Iowa, and MOLINE, Illinois, Jan, 22, 2013 – NorthPark and SouthPark Malls are proud to announce a partnership with National Geographic to bring even more fun and more education to its Kids Club programming.

With help from the Bettendorf Family Museum, guests of the NorthPark Mall Kids Club can plan on attending the first Club Meeting set for January 26, from 11:00am – 12:00pm. Our SouthPark Mall Club Meeting is set for January 26, from 3:00pm – 4:00pm. Our kick-off program, just in time for winter, will be a “Polar Party.” Participants will have the opportunity to compare hand prints to polar bear paws, participate in a sing-along, and parade through the center.

Parents and kids also can enjoy the educational fun at home, with materials available online, at both malls and as part of the Kids Club Newsletter. The Kids Club program will offer a new theme bi-monthly, with topics ranging from the oceans and animals to insects and outer space. Following our Polar Party, we will dig deep with dinosaurs and head into spring with springtime fun. From fun facts to photos with friends, parents and kids will enjoy all there is to discover at the exciting new Kids Club at NorthPark and SouthPark Malls.

“Great experiences for families and kids are an important part of what our mall offers the community,” said Aleshia Chiesa, Marketing Manager, NorthPark and SouthPark Malls. “National Geographic is an iconic name in fun and educational experiences for young people, and we are very proud to add this exciting new element to our Kids Club.”

The National Geographic Society has been inspiring people to care about the planet since 1888. It is one of the largest nonprofit scientific and educational institutions in the world. Its interests include geography, archaeology and natural science, and the promotion of environmental and historical conservation.

For a complete list of Kids Club dates and times, visit www.north-park-mall-ia.com or www.shopsouthparkmall-il.com and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to receive the most up-to-date information.
