Museum Days At Home

We went to a children's museum while in Washington visiting Heather.  It was the most wonderful place and both Abigail and I loved it.  Since being home I have tried to create some "children's museum" type activities for us to enjoy.
 One has been the rice bucket.  It is as simple as that.  A bucket full of rice, spoons, cups, and other little containers to move the rice back and forth between. 
 And of course our sink is a wonderful water station.  Each time she plays in the sink we bring out different toys, cups and blocks to play with.  She loves that our sink faucet sprays and is a hose that can come down and move around.  
And the difference between the museum and home is that if a little tasting of the rice or drinking of the water occurs, which we know for sure it will, that is 100% ok.  Yes, it would be wonderful to have a museum near us for the kids to enjoy but this works, for now.

YOU ARE SUCH A GREAT MOMMA!!! Kathleen, I love that you make the most out of everything...you can make anything fun for your kiddos. Most would just complain and wish for a museum, but you create it! I learn so much from you! Thanks friend!
