But the kids loved everything in the Children’s Museum on the North Side.
They said “Just like Lala’s porch swing” (at the entrance)
Jack and Maura rushing to get inside. We lucked out – THROWBACK THURSDAY the kids were 1/2 price admission.
Silk screening first so everything had a chance to dry in the studio before we took it home
Maura loved putting her artwork into the dryer and watching it come out the other end on the conveyor belt.
Of course Grandma had to take a shot of the installation art More Light by Dick Esterle with the beautiful ribbons and the rotunda of the Old Post Office.
Don’t bother buying toys, just tape of corrugated boxes so the kids can build. STUDIO
I found this Tower Clock n the stairwell when I checked on Jack.
Climbing in the Ant Farm. They never tired of climbing up and down.
One of the Mr. Rogers’ items in the museum. His mother knit this- perfectly
You can watch Mr Rogers explain how his mother shows love here
His sneakers were in the next exhibit area- ATTIC
Maura tried her hand at STOP animation video production in MAKESHOP®
Lost count how many times they went down the slide via the Gravity Room
Cool puppets display in the ATTIC
But here is my favorite Daniel Striped Tiger
Henrietta Pussycat Puppet from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood
This sand design created by spinning the disk is mesmerizing – Avalanche by Ned Kahn
Videoing the emotion on the screen This is SCARED in the XOXO exhibit. All you need is love………..
A really great installation art piece of the spinning barrels by Will Schlough in the GARAGE
Jack cranked the parachute up to the ceiling but it got trapped.
You can see the Old Post Office Rotunda from the outside
At the outdoor lemonade stand, Jack promised to buy me a new car on his promise of a good deed tag. No money for the lemonade. I promised to be a patient grandmother and tweeted it with a hashtag.
Jack got on the KDKA news clip

The original Carnegie Free Library on the North Side (Allegheny). Walked by on the way to the car. It was a great day.
Thanks to my friend V for suggesting I take the kids. A very good idea.
