People do not outgrow the Children’s Museum!

Yes, I’ve been to the museum for a play-date with a group of 3 year olds. I’ve also visited with an 8 and 11 year old. A few years ago I even attended one of the best wedding receptions I have ever been to, and it was at the GRCM!

If you haven’t been to the Children’s Museum lately, there are many new things waiting for you to explore. (Check out this article about the museum’s newest features.)

Are you ready to get to work playing?

The last I heard, the GRCM Kidstruction Zone was looking for some new help with scooping, dumping and creating. Requirements for these positions include:

  • Must be between birth and 110 years old
  • Not afraid to play
  • Willing to try new things
  • Hard hats are optional but highly recommended to complete the ensemble.

Once you’ve put in your time at the Kidstruction Zone, you might want to head on over to test your balancing skills in the Adventures in Balance area.

Here you can try walking on stilts. Or crossing the hot lava. It’s not as easy as it sounds! Perfecting the skills needed to lift your hand and foot at the same time requires dedication and determination. (Don’t worry mom and dad… the kids won’t mind coming back again and again until you get it right.)

After that, head over to the new Imagination Playground.

GR Children's Museum

Each visit to the Imagination Playground is a new and rewarding experience.

This is a space where anything that can be imagined comes to life. There are no rules, no blueprints and no right or wrong creations.

Do you think you are up for the challenge? Are you ready to face the lava, create an unknown structure or work at the Kidstruction Zone site?

One of our grkids.com lucky readers is going to win a 4 pack of passes to the GRCM. To enter this giveaway, please tell us which new exhibit you (or your child) would love to play on.
