Yesterday the girls and I met up with some friends of ours for a field trip. We went to the Great Lakes Children's Museum in Traverse City.
This was the area under the lighthouse play area. Kids could dress up and pretend they were lighthouse keepers.
Another screen showed what kinds of interesting creatures one might find in our great lakes.
Kids arrange the tubes & joints to make paths for plastic balls.
The Garbage Game. Kids choose a toy garbage item and decide how to dispose of it properly: in the garbage, recycling, compost, or the storm drain. (Hint: NEVER choose the storm drain!)
We had a great time! I didn't photograph the living water cycle, the ship's sail you could manually raise & lower, or the puppet theater.
It's definitely appropriate for a younger crowd--Olivia was borderline too old. Plenty to see and do, though!
