Kid City...

Today we went to Kid City at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park. Marissa was with us and we met up with Andrew and Connor. It is a kid section that is set up for them to explore: computers, books, magnetic letters and numbers on a huge board, a factory and a grocery store with a conveyor belt. They had a blast! The highlight was the conveyor belt in the store. There were shopping baskets to push and hand held baskets of fruits and veggies. The kids got right to work with putting the food on the belt and turning the wheel until all the food dropped into another basket or bucket at the other end. Then they would run to the other side and start all over! Another great part was the factory. It had a conveyor belt also but they liked playing with balancing the buckets and pushing the foam shapes through the holes, and dropping the little balls into the tracks and watching them roll down to the bottom. They loved it! We will try to go back on a free entry day!
