During our trip to Lancaster County, in Pennsylvania we visited the Hands on House. I have a membership to our local children’s museum which enables our family to get into children’s museums across the country for free through their reciprocal program, which I think is awesome. I am trying to visit as many Children’s Museums during our travels as possible. (Being that we don’t travel very often I suppose it may be a little more difficult, but still fun to try!!) Anyway here are some pictures of the fun things there are to do at the Hands on House. This is really a great little museum for children. The last time we were here Emily was only about 18 month. She had a good time, but was really able to play and enjoy it this time now that she was older and with her friends! Juliette had a great time following Emily and checking everything out too.
One of Emily’s favorite exhibits is the store. It is set up like a miniature grocery store. There are all different types of foods, a real cash register, shopping carts and even shopping lists. Emily and I worked together to get everything she needed from one of the shopping list and then her friend checked us out!
There is a dress up/make believe room. Here the kids enjoyed pretending to steer a ship!
Emily and Juliette picked corn from the corn stalks in this cute exhibit. Juliette loved this fishing exhibit…Daddy not so much, no I think I just caught him mid blink, but how could I not share that amazing little smile on Miss Juliette’s face!
If you are ever in the Lancaster area I totally recommend visiting the Hands on House for a fun and educational experience!
