Take a Road trip with Weebles Coast to Coast
Have you wanted to take your kids on a coast-to-coast road trip? Oh the things you all would learn and see. Devin and I took a cross-country trip by visiting The Children’s Museum of Atlanta and its newest exhibit, “Weebles Coast to Coast.” This couldn’t come at a more perfect time because my son loves vacations and always talks about where we will go next.
Weebles Coast to Coast is an educational travel exhibit giving families the opportunity to visit the 50 states without ever leaving the Children’s Museum. There are over 70 hands-on activities, and children learn and explore the history and unique characteristics of each state really making learning fun. In fact I actually learned quite a bit too. It is by far one of my favorite museum exhibits so far.
Visitors can plan their “trip” with a giant U.S. map and a touch-screen kiosk featuring the country’s geographic regions, importance state facts, national landmarks and popular tourist destinations. The Murals of beautiful American landscapes provide the backdrop for engaging play areas that represent U.S regions: Western, Mountain, Southwest, Midwest, Southwest and Northeast, and create memorable stops at the seaside, mountains, forest and desert. A special reading area is dedicated to U.S. geography, history, travel, and the ideas that “a book can take you anywhere!”
The exhibit is designed for children ages 4 – 10. Hands-on activities present opportunities for children to build cognitive and social skills, be physically active, curious and imaginative, and express themselves through music, movement and art.
A trip to the Children’s Museum of Atlanta will be well worth it. You’ll never have an easier time traveling cross-country with kids than this. We really enjoyed it, and it will be a fun road trip for your family during the last few weeks of summer.
Weebles Coast to Coast will be in town until September 8, 2013
