To Be a Kid Again

This is the "Twin Mill" and it was a beauty!
Last week, I was able to go on a field trip with a group of 4-H members to the Indianapolis Children's Museum.  It was so much fun to see all of the different attractions and to watch the kids eyes light up when they saw something they found fascinating.  I had a group of boys, so needless to say, we spent a lot of time in the new Hot Wheels For Real Exhibit.  Here, the boys got to play with Hot Wheels cars, draw them, race them, see life size versions of was AWESOME!  I even fell in love with my own Hot Wheels car - the "Twin Mill."

We also visited the Lego Travel Adventure where we built our own Lego travel vehicle in a competition against other teams, played in a huge cock-pit of Lego vehicle and saw different Lego artworks from the past. 

Dinosphere was really cool too.  The boys were fascinated by the displays and kept asking me if dinosaurs were really real and if the bones on display were real.  Good thing for me, the Children's Museum actually had specialists on hand showing fossils and answering questions.  What a relief. 

There were many other displays that we visited, but these were their favorites.  If you have children and come to Indianapolis, I encourage you to make this one of your stops.  Your kids will love it!

According to their web-site, "We (the Indianapolis Children's Museum) pride ourselves on being a top tourist attraction for family vacations. So if you're planning a Midwest vacation this summer, make sure The Children's Museum of Indianapolis is on your list!"
