Delaware Children's Museum

Sometimes it's tough to find something to do when school is closed for the day, especially in the winter months.  Here at our house, we've had a little too much "togetherness" during winter break and a few snow days that didn't have enough snow to actually play in.  When this week's calendar showed a day off for professional development for teachers, I knew I had to come up with some way to get out of the house.  The problem was finding somewhere to go that wasn't packed with all the other kids in the county who also had the day off.  My solution?  Head out-of-state for a day trip!  Our destination?  The Delaware Children's Museum.

Last year, I purchased a family membership to Port Discovery here in Baltimore.  One of the membership perks is participation in the Association of Children's Museums Reciprocal Program.  The reciprocal program allowed us to get into the Delaware Children's Museum for free!  Parking at the museum is also free, so it was a really inexpensive day trip (just a stop at McDonalds for lunch, gas and a few tolls).  It's not too far of a trip either ~ about an hour and a half from our home in northwest Baltimore.  And, while the DCM is definitely smaller than Port Discovery, its exhibits and activities kept the kids occupied for hours!

The "big kids" liked testing their knowledge!  
Working together to learn how to build an arch.     

Perfecting her construction skills.
The artist at work.
Water play.
"Let's try doing it this way!"
They could have stayed in the water area for HOURS!
Rowing down the river!
"Let's see if this building will withstand an earthquake!"
Scaling the rock wall.

  2. It really is a good time and we had the bonus of having the place practically to ourselves because children in Delaware still had school. We stayed for almost 4 hours and the kids never once said they were bored!

  3. Looks like such a fun trip!! I'm wondering if Audrey (3 in April) would be a little young for it yet. She's a bit young for Port Discovery, too...

  4. Amber, Audrey would be a little too young for some sections of it, but I think there would still be a lot that would appeal to her. In fact, I think it does a much better job than Port Discovery of appealing to a whole range of ages, even within one section. I'd say it's like Storyville, Port Discovery and the children's room of the Science center all rolled into one. Plus, it just opened last year, so everything is fresh, clean and new.

  6. أما النمل فهي حشرة تصاب بالتسمم حال تناولا للخيار ولا تستطيع أن تشم رائحة تواجد الطعام جيدًا حال تناولها السمسم شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض لذلك يمكن وضع قشور الخيار وقطع الخيار في أمكن وجحور تواجدها لتسمم النمل وتستخدم السمسم عدة مرات عند كل مرة ننظف فيها المنزل لكي يصاب النمل بتعطيل حاسة الشم وبالتالي لا يمكنه الحصول على الطعام، فيما يمكن قتل النمل نهائيًا باستخدام عجين الصودا رش مبيدات بالرياض والسكر معًا وهو يتم تحضيره من خلال وضع كيس من الصودا مع ثلاث ملاعق من السكر وتنظيف أرجاء المنزل به ووضعه في الثقوب أيضًا فيموت النمل في الحال.
