Children's museum...

Today was such an awesome day for the kids! We got going early this morning and went to the Childrens Museum in Escondido with our preschool homeschooling group. The museum was a bit off the map (read: everyone got lost) but when we finally all made it there, we had a blast. There were so many things for the kids to explore and do. They got to touch everything in the museum. We didn't get to everything (because there was so much to do) but we did get to tie-dye a t-shirt for each of the kids. And there was a playhouse to play in, costumes to dress up in, art to do, a puppet theater, shoes from around the world (Noah had fun with the clogs-see picture below), fun with bubble-making, a giant treehouse to climb up inside, animal track puzzles, a baby area full of toys, a measuring section, shapes, magnets, a spot to feel skunk and rattlesnake skins, a childrens garden, a schoolhouse, an art area with everything you need to create...I could go on and on. I'm sure we'll go again :-)

I'll have to get a picture of the shirts tomorrow (or the next day) because they are still wet but here are just a few pictures of what we did do.
