The Magic House is a children’s museum. This section was devoted to the environment and they had a little mock re-sell-it shop so the children could learn about reuse. There was also a section with a real Smart car, a mock town with grocery store etc. There was a pond where the children could fish with magnetic fishing poles and then they could release the “fish” in a different pond and watch it swim in a creek that they could see under the floor through glass. Also, a construction section, bubbles, water. Very cool
DollFace seemed to like the rougher areas like construction and climbing. Stretch liked the more creative areas like mask making and science experiments. I have to hand it to Stretch a little. This is really a place for younger kids and once she warmed up she showed DollFace things and helped me keep track of her.
At one point, I was in a play kitchen with DollFace making “soup”. I looked away for a second and when I turned back she had the spoon right there by my mouth. When I opened my mouth to speak she shoved the spoon right in. Uhhhgggg!! I can’t help but think about the thousands of children who have had that thing in their hands and mouths. Ugghhggg. I wouldn’t be surprised if I came down with whopping cough, tuberculosis or the plague by next week. Mouth sanitizer? Thank goodness, I have the immunity of a school teacher.
DollFace surprised me by ordering a mint oreo shake at Steak n Shake and eating the whole thing. I wouldn’t think mint would be something a little kid would like. Stretch surprised me by ordering a banana milkshake and then barely touching it. I ordered a patty melt and was horrified when I got home and looked up the calorie info: 1013.
