When it is the midst of winter, we are in great need of a place to go as a family to have fun. One of our favorite places is the Children’s Museum in Green Bay. It is such a great place to spend an afternoon because there are alway so many activities to keep the kids entertained. Each month the Children’s Museum picks a new theme and creates hands-on stations for kids to explore. With the ever-changing activities, we are never bored.
Our last visit the girls spent the majority of their time pouring and scooping up sand in the sandbox, straining water and building barricades in the water station, and playing school in the treehouse. We also spent some time at the painting station which they always find to be great fun. Each year for Christmas, we ask for a family membership. It has been a well used gift, so we are always appreciative of the family time together.
March 12-April 3, the Green Bay Children’s Museum is offering $20 off a full Family Membership with code FAMILY and $10 off a Grandparent Membership with code GRAND. If you are looking for more things to do with your family, this would be worth checking into since membership discounts are pretty rare.
I’ve yet to check out the Children’s Museum in Appleton– I plan to this summer with my sister and her kids who live there, but have been to the one in Madison which is HUGE–Three stories with a rooftop garden! Also, many facilities offer military and educator discounts and some offer reciprocity (where you can use their facility free or at a large discount if you have a membership at another location). I was able to get a discount at the Madison Children’s Museum for being an educator. It helped cut the cost of our visit.
So, if you are stuck inside with kids that are driving you crazy, check out what is available where you live. Your whole family is sure to have a good time engaging with one another in this playful environment.
