As parents of a toddler we find ourselves at the Bay Area Discovery Museum rather frequently. There are lots of activities to keep a toddler busy such as…
There is this great wall to paint on, spray with water, squeegee off and start again. Ivey LOVES to paint so we usually spend a good chunk of time doing this.
In the same art room there is a sand table, that on this occasion contained Bubber. Have you heard of Bubber? It is a really cool modeling compound that is lightweight, Gluten-Free, Dust-Free, Allergen Free, Stain Free, Easy to clean and never dries out. Personally I like it a million times better than the traditional Play-Doh.
There are also great outdoor activities but remember to bring a jacket and a hat in case it is foggy that day.
My daughter LOVES to climb rocks. If there is rocks anywhere to be found, she will find them and climb them!
But one of the favorite things (besides the yummy organic food) about the Bay Area Discovery Museum is simply enjoying each other as a family!
