The first one we explored was Fire Safety. Blaise climbed in a fire truck, slid down the pole and put out fires.
Blaise wore the Chicago's firemen's outfit for about half a second
He loved these cars
He drove and rode the CTA
There was a kitchen and market
Quite the intent little man
Blaise the Builder
There was an archaeology dig, where you could clean off dinosaur bones with a brush.
Blaise saving Jan from the dinosaur head
There were also some baby areas for the littlest museum goers.
This was a cool contraption to test if the plane you built could fly
And then we went back to some of our favorite things once things quieted down and before moving on to new things:
Okay, Blaise, Mommy too - Kate was snoozing in the ergo
The next section was the wilderness area. Blaise and Jan went fishing in the brook.
Enjoying fresh vegetables from the garden outside the log cabin
The final area we spent time in was really for older kids, but Blaise really enjoyed the construction zone. He sorted screws and carried around 2 x 4s.
I very much recommend the Chicago Children's Museum for your next trip to the Windy City!
