Last night, Lucas, Isaac and I spent the evening at a special preview of the new Playscape at The Children’s Museum that opens Saturday, Aug. 31st.
I’ll be honest: I used to feel like the old Playscape was in a cave. No windows and no natural light. Great things to play with but in small, cramped spaces. While my kids liked playing there, I really didn’t like spending time in that part of the museum at all.
Until now. You guys, this new Playscape? It’s amazing.
There’s also an art area with inspiration from nature all around, an amazing music room with tons of instruments to play and the Whirly Twirly Tower. And there’s also Babyscape within Playscape – which is far from a place for just babies. It’s designed for infants and toddlers and Lucas had a blast in that area too. Isaac is just a bit too young, but man, he’s going to LOVE IT come this fall and winter, when I’m sure we’ll be spending a TON of time there.
One more thing: there’s a Mother’s Room, built for moms and kiddos only. There are three separate, private spaces for moms to feed their babies or rock to sleep with a tv and a basket full of books for that older child who is with you. Ahem, exactly a space for me, Isaac and Lucas.
We spent two hours in Playscape and Lucas was NOT happy when it was time to leave. There is so much to do, and since there are so many windows and natural light, you don’t feel trapped so you can stay with your 5 and under kiddos for a LONG time.
