The Museum of Nature and Science

One of the mom's from Little Miss's preschool class has a membership to the Museum of Nature and Science so when she called and asked if we'd like to join them for a day at the museum we jumped at the chance.

Today's Little Explorer's theme was "Plenty of Pumpkins". We sat for a story about pumpkins, danced to some groovy music, and got a lesson on the anatomy of a pumpkin. Then we all went into the craft room to make pumpkin crafts including finger painting, gluing, colouring, and planting a pumpkin seed to take home.

With our crafts drying on the stroller we headed into the museum to check out the human body exhibit and play in the "Explore your World" Children's Museum. "Made up of five galleries, it is a place where children will learn about the world in which we all live." The galleries include: Little Urban Farm, Water Room, Explore Your Town, Explore My House, and Explore Your Backyard.

After we had our fun playing and learning at the museum we parked the strollers and dug in to our picnic lunch.

If you haven't been to the Children's Museum at the Museum of Nature and Science you are definitely missing out!
