The Children's Museum

For a total of $8 (plus a reasonably-priced lunch), two kids and two adults can spend eight hours doing things like:

Stepping on a frog mosaic (actually, this you can see for free, in the sidewalk outside the front door).

Putting together a magnetic undersea puzzle, too hard for a lot of kids but, needless to say, not too hard for mine.

Practicing basic hygiene.

Taping your own television show in a real TV studio.

And then watching the show.

Learning about optical illusions in the tilty house.

(Note: This is the best part.)

Contemplating emus.

Playing chess.

Being mum.

Making lightning.

And other lightning-like things.

Getting faces painted.

Being encouraged to read.

Shopping in a child-sized model grocery store, and then going through the checkout to see if you've stayed within your assigned budget.

(Okay, y'all. There may be a genetic component to some behaviors.)

And playing in/on two different airplanes, a fire truck, a train and a big-ass helicopter.

Basic hygiene.

Hmmm, I need to practice a bit more of that.

I wanna go there and play! I'll skip the grocery store because I do that anyway. But the rest looks like fun!

Emus are so cool.

And that face painter is pretty good!

It looks like a stunning museum for kids - I want to take mine too!
