The kids and I spent the afternoon playing in a local children's museum. It's small and very play-oriented. We had a blast.
They have a bubble room with huge bubble wands and even a body-swallowing bubble!
The upstairs has sports-themed toys. They had basketball, balance boards, bikes, and cup stacking.
They also had various nature activities. Planting flowers, a little tree house/cave, a wooden camper made to look like an AirStream, magnetic leaves to match with trees, and bird sounds.
But the best part was the explore-a-house area. You get to climb, crawl, and walk through the innards of a house including the attic, plumbing, and crawl space. Along the way you learn about the various layers of a house, the structure, heating, etc. But the BEST part?
They have a ginormous toilet that you can climb up and down, leading to a lower level of the house. It even has a sensor when you climb through that makes a flushing sound. The kids could not get enough of the toilet.
I have to admit, I thought it was pretty cool too. And who could resist sitting on a huge toilet?
And what fun would a giant toilet be if you couldn't pretend to use it?
I won't mention that he actually unzipped his pants...
