This past Saturday was Museum Day, an annual event where museums all over the country offer free admission.
Stephen and I took advantage of this free event back in 2009 during our unemployment stage of life, so when my friend Kristy suggested we pick out a museum and go together, I was totally up for it!
We decided on the AZ Museum for Youth way over in Mesa. It was perfect for our little guys! The museum was divided into two sections, ArtVille and ArtZone. ArtVille was filled with various play stations for babies and toddlers–kitchen, garden, dress-up theater, reading room, over-sized plush building blocks, baby zone. Silas loved drawing on the giant whiteboard, but mainly he loved erasing what everyone else had drawn. When I asked him what he was drawing here, he said, “It’s just blue.” 🙂 Cooper eventually took to the play space and gnawed on whatever toy he could grab.
ArtZone focused more on specific types of arts and crafts. Cooper liked playing the giant piano, built like the one Schroeder plays in the Peanuts comic strip. The enormous Lite Brite toy was a hit too.Fun place to hang out with little dudes!
