exciting excursion

on May 10, 2011

I had forgotten what children’s museums are meant to be like.

The last time I visited our local museum was a year ago with my nieces who were aged 4 and 6 at the time.  They were entertained for a little while but the interactive quality wasn’t what I’d expected.  However, these girls have visited lots of museums.

Friday night I escorted three children from the school where I work, to the same museum.  We were there to see our school banners on display but it was the activities in the space that most attracted my charges; they explored them thoroughly.  It was refreshing to watch children with limited museum experience have a blast engaging with every bit of the stuff.  My young preschooler really wanted to take the 1950’s era go-cart home, he couldn’t believe it would really work.

Our banner display was pretty cool for me to see but I also loved watching these kids play.

        “Precious cargo”  Don’t you think their mom will love this photo?

    Refreshing to see kids who can get into the experience, who haven’t had the opportunities perhaps that others have. It must have been a very special time, and they were so lucky to have you to take them there. Their mom WILL love the “precious cargo” photo!

    Your banners look good; perhaps you can give us a closer look. And I too loved the precious cargo pic-nice of you to think of their parents, too.
