We enjoyed our visit with family in St. Louis, Missouri. We visited the St. Louis Science Center. Even though B is only 22 months, there were lots of things for him to see and do. It basically was a great place to run and play on a cold, winter day. But watch out for those dinosaurs! They were scary. Sometimes it’s nice to be needed. As we were walking (running) around the Science Center, I started wondering if we were encouraging science over the arts. We could have gone to the art museum or the history museum, but instead we chose the science center. I actually didn’t even consider the art museum. We probably would have gone to the zoo if it was warmer. So maybe it was more a factor of B’s age and the need to be loud and run. In either case, my goal is to be more aware of B’s interests. Right now, it’s all about transportation! I like that our Montessori school allows for student/child independence and freedom to choose their own activities. My goal is to incorporate those ideas into our home as well. You can check out my at home Montessori activities in my other posts.
Does your family lean more towards the arts or science? How about sports?
Here are a few pictures from our trip!
