Anyways, I lucked out and found one for the Children's Museum of Phoenix. Last time we went we didn't have much time to explore so I made sure to plan better this time. I figured J would maybe last 2 hours before getting bored.
She could have stayed there all day.
Here is some of the fun as captured by my phone.
They had a big painting area, complete with smocks and a tree structure to paint. I thought it was really cool but J was more interested in coloring with the crayons and attempting to use scissors. She cried when I led her to the glitter playdough table. Yet she pointed to all the art of the walls and said, "Pretty!" Perhaps there is some art appreciation in there somewhere.
They had this cool car wash thing for the kids to run bikes through. She couldn't quick manage it, but it didn't stop her from trying.
There was an entire room dedicated to building forts.
She really liked these light tables. There was another one with sand on it she spent a lot of time at too. I'm trying to decide if I want to make one out of a train table.
|Note that she had to put her purse in the cart. This purse has to be dragged everywhere we go.|
Of course her number one favorite thing was probably the J sized sink in the bathroom.
I didn't get pictures of half the stuff we did, but it is seriously a REALLY cool place to visit. I even looked into buying a year pass because we had that much fun. Well worth the cost of a movie admission and now my favorite culture pass ever.
