On the day of the outing, we had a great ratio of 2 to 1, children to adults. When we arrived at the museum, I was so thankful we had so many helpers. They actually closed entrance to the museum for the rest of the day shortly after we got there, because there were already so many people there. Inside was packed, but the kids didn’t seem to mind. They had a great time weaving in between the crowds, trying out all the hands on activities they’d never seen before. I loved getting to watch the kids investigate and experience so many new things. Julio, my 8 year old counterpart, kept turning around and yelling, “Look at this!!! Look at this!!!”, before dashing off to something new.
The kids had so much fun! For most of them, it was their first experience going to a museum. I can’t wait to take the kids there again. There was so much in museum we couldn’t see as a result of time and it being over-crowded. Hopefully next time I’ll be able to take the 7 year olds too.
