That looks like a lot of fun, but not in a setting I'd expect - where were you?

Salzwedel Family said...

It was held at our son's school. They had each class come through during the day and had it stay open in the evening for a couple of hours so families could attend. It was fun to go to something where they could touch everything without having to worry.

It looks like a traveling museum. Pretty cool.

What a lot to do!

It seems to me that we once had something like this at our school as well. I remember that it was a lot of fun for the kids and really encouraged them to want to know more. It looks like you all had a good time.
