The "Big Kids" Have Their Say...

Kids love Play Power, but so do the grown-ups! Arielle, one of the Museum's Experience Coordinators, proudly demonstrated last week that she's learned three songs on our new musical pipes: "Mary Had a Little Lamb," "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and "Hot Cross Buns." (Next time you're at the Museum, I'm sure she'll be happy to share!)

Adults and older children have had fun responding to the talk-back board in Play Power, which asks, "What was a special place where you played?" Here's what they've had to say:

Merideth, another Experience Coordinator, is encouraging the Museum's staff and volunteers to reflect on the great play that they're seeing in our new exhibit. She posted the following in the staff kitchen:

I'm sure there will be more great stories to come. What have YOU seen with the dome, or elsewhere in Play Power? Leave us a comment!

My office window looks out on the atrium ramp. Yesterday, out of the corner of my eye I noticed something colorful and fast moving down the ramp. I turned to look and along came another one - followed by laughing, running kids. They were the long foam "noodles" from Play Power that kids had formed into hoops and were rolling down the ramp! How inventive! How wonderful!

I saw this from my window, too, and it gets better! One of the "kids" was actually a grandfather (I think). He and his granddaughter were rolling the hoops down the ramp together and having a great time!
