What’s fun and educational, all wrapped into one? The Magic House, of course!
I love having the ability to take my kids to do something that isn’t just fun, but a learning experience as well. In fact, that is one reason I am happy to live in the St. Louis Metropolitan area because there are so many wonderful places that I can take the kids to see and each provides a unique learning experience that you won’t find anywhere else. With absolutely awesome children’s museums, the zoo and so many other fun activities for kids in the St. Louis area, it’s kind of hard to be bored.
One of our favorite places to go is The Magic House. If you grew up in this area, then you know exactly where I’m talking about. If you are a new transport to the area with little ones at home, then you definitely have to check it out. We’ll be going Friday to see the Magic School Bus Exhibit and my son just can’t wait! He’s been asking me all week, “Mom, how many more days until we get to go to The Magic House?” But the truth is that I’m just as excited to go as he is!
A Little About the Magic School Bus Exhibit at The Magic House
The forecast calls for rain, snow, sleet, sunshine and every type of weather imaginable when The Magic School BusTMKicks Up a Storm exhibit makes a stop at The Magic House. Museum visitors can hop aboard The Magic School Bus which has been magically transformed into a “flying” Weather Observatory and join Ms. Frizzle and her class on an adventure in weather. Kids can experience a whirlwind of weather related activities as they measure lightning distances and discover what causes those brilliant flashes, experience extreme weather, create their own unique snowflakes using ice crystals.
Visitors are also invited to breeze into Ms. Frizzle’s Classroom and checkout a flurry of fun hands-on science projects such as Ralphie’s Hot Air Balloon Race, Carlos’ Air Blasters and Wanda’s Water Cycle Wheel. The Magic School BusTM Kicks Up a Stormexhibit also includes a field trip with Ms. Frizzle’s class to the Walkerville Weather Center where museum visitors have the opportunity to go “on-location” as a reporter dressed for the weather, get the inside scoop on weather terms and vocabulary, see footage of tornados and other cool video clips and much more.
