A leap year happens once every four years. Its a year with 366 daysFebruary 29 is an added bonus. Our calendar year has 365 days, but it actually takes Earth 365.2422 days to complete its orbit around the sun. Roman emperor Julius Caesar recognized the problem more than 2,000 years ago and introduced the concept of leap years to synchronize the calendar year with the solar year.

Kids and families can jump into Leap Year-related crafts and activities, including making a frog puppet and a leaping animals coloring book. Join a long jump competition and a jumping lily pad race. The Exploration Station will be open to introduce visitors to frogs, lizards, bugs, a bunny, and other creatures that leap, jump, and hop.
