I liked that many of the exhibits featured recycled materials and that they ask for donations of materials for various upcoming projects like cereal boxes, scrap fabric, etc. It lets the kids get involved even more in the exhibits and recycling is always a good thing.
The cardboard box building area was Kinsley's favorite. She spent quite a while building a fort out of the various size boxes. They also had the book Not A Box in this area to read to the kids. If you haven't read this book you should, it is very cute. And you know we love to pretend with a box around here.
Kaitlyn had a different opinion of the best exhibit. The tape tunnels won her vote and really I can't blame her. How cool is a huge tunnel made out of packing tape? We really want to try our hand at making one of these at home.
Both girls enjoyed the various arts and crafts areas that were set up around the building. Most of the time was probably spent in these areas which is just a little funny to me since we have most of the same supplies available at home for these projects. I guess a change of scenery makes something seem new and interesting though.
I will say that while the space isn't quite as large as I had imagined we were still able to spend several hours there (and probably would have been more if they had their way). Another great thing is that they change the activities and exhibits periodically so that you can come again and again and always have something new to do. We're looking forward to our next visit already.
