This weekend we decided to brave some rainy weather and head out to take Judah to Discovery Place Kids, in Huntersville, NC. It’s about 20 minutes from our house. I had been there before a few summers ago but Judah and Brandon had never been. It’s an all hands-on children’s museum for kids. I was curious to see how Judah would like it because even though he loves to explore and experiment, he is still on the younger side for a museum like this and I knew it would be a bit crowded and a little overwhelming on a rainy Saturday.
They have so much stuff to explore. A full size fire truck, and lots of other things to “drive” like a tractor, a boat, and airplane, a race car, and a few more. Judah loves anything with a steering wheel so they were all a big hit. He warmed up quickly even with lots of other kids running around and we were having fun watching him have fun.
They have a little mock restaurant where the kids can cook and serve their parents meals at little booths, and a sweet little grocery store where you can fill your cart with goodies and even check out on a little conveyer belt.
They have a huge water table with full sized plastic bibs (thank goodness.) There is a huge room for creating art with pretty much any medium. We steered clear of that area, knowing the mess Judah would have made, but we may give it a try next time when it’s less crowded. In the center of the museum is a huge jungle gym with a slide. Being 24 weeks pregnant, I only made it up and down with Judah once and then Brandon stepped in and went a few more times with him. At the end of our time we decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and get season passes. That way we can go during the week this winter for something fun to do outside of the house, and maybe spend a few more rainy Saturdays there as well. If you live in the area I highly suggest it, or just come visit us and Judah can show you around. 🙂
