Last week the weather was cold and nasty all week and by Friday Colin was itching to do something out of the house so I finally took him to the NY Hall of Science which is less than 2 miles from our apartment. If the weather was nice I could easily walk. They have a pre-school play area that I thought Colin would enjoy so we went to check it out. He had a GREAT time. The room was smaller than I had thought it would be but still, he had fun. I'm sure we will be returning many times this winter. Next time I'll pack a lunch because the 'cafeteria' was not toddler friendly, in fact it wasn't really adult friendly either. Here are the pictures:
In the 0-2 section. Colin enjoyed the mats and tunnels.
Although it is apparently better to BE the meat than BUY the meat. Colin is currently a vegetarian, I guess he has stronger feelings about it than I realized!
Time to check out.
We now have a two year membership!! Even better, there is a large section we couldn't get into the day we were there because of the school groups but it looks like there is a rather large train table in that area that I'm sure Colin will enjoy, and the membership fee sure is a lot cheaper than buying him one (not to mention finding room for one!)
