The local children’s science center just moved into our neighborhood. So, thats a big score. The price for a family admission for a year is very doable.
It’s a crazy cool place with tons of hands on things to play with.
And this brings me to the terrible truth about children’s museums…The truth is they’d be a lot more fun without children in them.
I mean, sure the youngest loves the pre-school room.
And the oldest loves the water center.
And the kids have a ton of fun when they go.
But…I’m having WAY too much fun myself to watch the kids.
How cool is this stuff!
Oooh! Oooh! The felt room!
First of all, I love felt.*
And I love these butterflies you can decorate with felt pieces.
I want one at my house!
Um…yeah, Stella if you could just go on and get away from the butterflies because Mama wants to play!
Each experiment has a plaque with an explanation that teaches you the science behind the experiment. Er…yeah, the minions totally ignore them.
Honestly, I ignore them too because…
Have you seen how fabulous I look in this mirror?
This is what my legs should have looked like. Long! **
Oh, I’m sorry child. I don’t have time to teach you about science because I’m too busy enjoying myself.
I’m sure that’s what the founders envisioned when they dreamed about Sci-Quest – parents ignoring their children.
If you live in Huntsville, Go!
*Here’s when I don’t love felt: When I accidentally felt something my Mom has made me. Seriously, just don’t ask her about the amazing jacket she knit for James when he was a baby.
**This is what my Mom’s legs actually look like.
