The Flint Hills International Children’s Festival continues this weekend in downtown St. Paul, with lots of music, arts, and fun. Roam through the Discovery Garden, learn how to juggle in Rice Park, and catch the acrobats dancing on the side of Lawson Commons. There’s even a butterfly garden–how cool is that?
The Big Back Yard at the Science Museum is open again, with mini-golf, a camera obscura, a maze of native plants, and the greatest sand and water table ever. This is one of the 52 places in the book, and one of my favorite spots in the Twin Cities. That it’s attached to the Science Museum only makes it that much cooler.
And another of my favorite places opens for the season on Monday, the outdoor atrium at the Children’s Museum. This year there are giant blue foam blocks that can be used to construct your dream palace (or train, ship, dinosaur, etc.).
Boredom is simply not an option!
