As a mom (and teacher), I strive everyday to engage, nurture, and expand the mind of my little one.
Here you will find the books, music, and activities most useful to me in my endeavors.

Smithsonian Free Museum Day

Looking for a fun - perhaps different - way to spend a Saturday afternoon with your toddler?
Oh, and did you catch the fact that I said, FREE?
I love, love, love FREE toddler-friendly entertainment, especially when it's something that grown-ups enjoy, too!




Smithsonian Magazine is sponsoring a nationwide Museum Day, which allows you to enjoy free general admission to hundreds of museums and cultural venues on Saturday, September 26, 2009.

It will be a tough decision for us here in the NW. Here is just a partial list of participating museums in the area:
  • Bellevue Arts Museum - Oh, an art museum near a Jimmy John's location ...
  • Experience Music Project - This is my personal 1st choice.
  • KidsQuest Children's Museum - We already have a membership.
  • Log House Museum - This one made me chuckle ... and think of my dad.
  • Seattle Art Museum - What's not to love about an art museum?
  • The Museum of Flight - Guessing this will be CPV's top choice.

Will you be enjoying a FREE trip to a museum on the 26th? If so, let me know which museum!

That's really cool, but we'll be doing a bday party at Remlinger Farms that day ... Love that idea however! I think I'd vote for the SAM, since I've done some of the others already.

Bummer that all the museums by us are obscure ones (Lithuanian culture museum, Sweedish museum). None of the big ticket ones are included :(

Yeah, I was hoping for the Seattle Children's Museum! I don't know that SP will want to go to an art musuem, so we'll probably go to KidsQuest or the Museum of Flight.
