You are worried about seeing him spend his early years in doing nothing. What! Is it nothing to be happy? Nothing to skip, play, and run around all day long? Never in his life will he be so busy again. ~Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Ever since discovering that the Kidspace Children’s Museum offers free admission on the first Tuesday of each month, I knew that we would take that opportunity at some point! Who can pass up FREE these days right?! So this month was our first time, and definitely not the last! Although the free night is only a four-hour chunk of time, it gives enough opportunity to decide if it’s worth a full day trip coming again. It was really a fun experience for all three of them! The museum has various exploring areas encouraging lots of learning which was great!
They loved the art area….
There was the giant water-color station…
Lots of little crafts going on here…
The little artist
We love to paint!!
Then it was a mosaic craft..
Great for little creative minds 🙂
The museum had all these crazy crawling/climbing spaces that even the adults could try. This one below was very cool but about half way up with Grant I was getting dizzy… Literally when you are up that narrow of a space and looking up or down is the same view it kind of freaks you out! It seemed like it never ended so we turned around!
A never-ending crawl space..
Seriously there was so much to do! Like this fossil discovery area…
My little digger.
And this silly bug kitchen where the kids can play and pretend to serve the bugs meals. There were exhibits in the kitchen showing what bugs might lurk in our kitchens if we don’t keep them clean…GROSS!!
May we take your orders?!
At one point Grant ran out of the kitchen so fast yelling, “A BALL, A BALL!!!” and this is what he had spotted…
The golf Gods have spoken to him
It was pretty cute that he saw it so randomly at the time…and if it isn’t obvious, he is obsessed with anything sports related like big-bro.
There were some very cool exhibits all around and an entire room dedicated to learning the ends and outs of science related things… life cycles, rocks and minerals, bones, shells and water life, magnetic fields… so, so much we could definitely spend an entire day there! I think the summer time will be great because there is also a huge outdoor water play area and a new addition of fun activities that is opening up soon. The day we went was raining but the kids still wanted to mess around near the water of course!
Singing in the rain
Oh yeah and the museum has a calender of events that you can plan for. The evening we came on was a cultural dance night. That was a fun show and interesting to learn about a different style of dance…
So that was our experience at the Kidspace Museum and they can’t wait to go back! We love this kind of fun learning!
Till next time!
