Super Awesome Adventures at the Minnesota Children’s Museum

I adore the Minnesota Children’s Museum mission to inspire parents, educators and anyone involved with children to value play. Play is a child’s way of asking and answering questions to allow the world to make sense to them. I have seen this first hand through our homeschooling journey. The more hands on we have made their education, the more curiosity has been sparked. We act as mentors, a guide to ask open ended questions to give our kids room to develop critical thinking skills and the end result is confident kids.

 

On November 29th our family was invited to experience Forces at Play, one of the new exhibits at the museum. All four of  our kids had an absolute blast. Even Timmy was able to experience elements at his age level. Developing coordination, vocabulary and more as we went through the exhibit together. They have been asking me just about every day, at least weekly if this was the month of the grand reopening. After a delay that could not be helped we are now looking forward to the museum opening in June.

I have to tell you about one of the rooms called Super Awesome Adventures. The reason I love this room so much is because it has all of our kids favorite outside activities, inside. This means when the snow starts coming this winter, we can head up to the museum.

The theme of the room is space. As a family we will glide through a galactic skate park to experience planets, stars and the solar system in a whole new way.

Gliding on carpet skates to escape aliens and explore planets.

Blasting off on space ships to go where no man has gone before.

Crawling, gliding and facing off like Ninjas through a laser maze.

Testing agility on balance boards.

We cannot wait to choose our adventure on the climbing wall with the adventure we have chosen on the the green screen. You may have noticed I included a lot of we’s and our’s. This is because we want to embrace the museum’s mission to play right along with our kids. We want to put our work down and purposefully engage with the heart of our child, inspiring them not only academically, but relationally as well.

We have partnered with the Minnesota Children’s Museum to inspire our followers to embrace play as a way of learning. We are giving away a Family Four Pack on Russell’s Adventures to be used after the museum opens in June. Enter the random drawing below!

My rebel heart loves Jesus. It has been a journey learning about his love for me, but he continues to fight for me and has won my heart. I am learning to love and respect my husband Mark. After four years of being a mommy I fell in love with the role God had given me and I am now a passionate homeschool, stay at home mom. I love outdoor adventures with my family and our husky Skye. I love creating delicious physically and emotionally satisfying meals. I love walking life's hard road with those around me. I want to be a friend to the friendless and be a beacon of light and hope to the weary.
