We can’t wait for it to warm up here in Pittsburgh, but we won’t let the weather stop us from having fun! This past week, we took a really fun trip to the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh and can’t wait to show you around!
We started our trip in the Studio, where the kids painted, molded and pressed. Fun easels for painting with tempra, and water color painting platforms provide the perfect palate.
What kid doesn’t love to roll, pinch and sculpt with clay? Mine are no exception. The screen print machines are pretty exceptional though, offering something special that we’d not had the opportunity to try elsewhere. My hands were so busy, I forgot to grab my camera!
Our next stop at the museum was our long time favorite spot there – the Nursery. We could really have spent the whole day right there on this one floor. We started out with the train table (since that’s of course our constant addiction at home). It’s super since there’s plenty of room and enough trains for everyone on these spacious tables.
- Smocks are provided in the Studio area. We like that our smocks from home have long sleeves, so we opted to bring our own.
- They have a great lunch area where we saw guests purchasing food, and also bringing food from home. We thought the options there were lovely – healthy choices at reasonable prices.
- Parking is only a few dollars, but be prepared and make sure you get a ticket for this.
