The museum offers so many fantastic learning experiences for the kiddos. My personal favorite is the giant foam blocks. The kiddos love the physicality of moving the huge blocks, and creating structures. They have to think about how to fit blocks together and how to make their buildings strong. They love looking through the holes, or filling the holes with cylinders that can attach to other blocks too.
At home one afternoon we were tickled to find a momma duck with 8 brand new ducklings! We were surprised by how well they could climb up the dam, and how far from momma duck some of them ventured. (There is a creek behind my house, which we can observe through the fence. The egrets and herons are also starting to show up again now that it isn't so cold.)
