THE BEST ENTERTAINMENT FOR KIDS

Bernie has returned from filming for a week. It is so much easier to look after the toddlers when one parent or the nanny is here. A few days ago Bernie and I took the boys to the Zimmer Museum for Children. It is the most fabulous place for kids to play and learn. It is in a city building and takes up two floors. There are all different rooms for the children to play in. I had as much fun as they did. As soon as we arrived the boys were off, they knew their way around well as they come often.
First stop was an aeroplane. I'm sure the sweet girl passengers are in safe hands of the Curry boy pilots.

Then they enjoyed a touch screen music program.

Then downstairs to the water play tanks but they had a leak so they were turned into sand trays, with lots of toys to play with.

Banjo loves the coin slots. Put it in at the top and it rolls out the bottom.

Then it was shoes of an placed in a special bin so you can play on the pirate ship and jump into the sea of balls.

Fox is drowning.

Banjo has been to the supermarket and 

is going into the house.

Then it was time for a drink and a snack. There is a special snack room. We took our own snacks but there are vending machines there too. Here Fox shares his yogurt with Banjo.

We had a relax in the reading room, where Fox made his name with the big rubber letters and

listened to Papa read him a story.

There were many more rooms and activities. Too many to show here. The kids all have a great time there. They can run from one activity to the next when ever they please. They never get bored but they can get tired.

  1. It's great to see a museum that encourages children to actually do things and have fun while learning. I'm glad you enjoyed it, too.

  2. Wow, so many activities for the boys Diane. The rest areas would have come in handy, that's for sure. Enjoy.

  4. What a fantastic museum for children to look and learn as they play. Clever Granny Diane too for taking healthy snacks for the children instead of the vendor eats. Have a great weekend. Jo

  5. We have something similar here and very close to the house, so when it rains we take Toby there and he loves it ! There is even internet connection for the parents. We noticed that lots of Dads are there on Sunday mornings probably to let mum sleep a little more ... or do the cleaning !

  9. Gatinna, that is father's custody day outing, when he has custody of the children for the weekend.

    Diane, what a great place for children and better than anything I know of in Australia. America seems to be a fine place?

  14. What a fabulous place to take the children. The designers seemed to have thought of everything. I'm surprised it wasn't teeming with children.

  18. Looks like a top place for grandparents - and good for the grands, too. Love the shot of the 'drowning' boy - and you just stood there and took a photo?!
