There was so much to do and so much to see over at the Children’s Museum! The City Center children had an amazing time!


Creativity is important in so many ways. It’s incredible and inspiring to watch these little ones explore their creativity and explore themselves, while also having fun. As Thomas Merton once said, “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”


Learning about tools is important for little ones! It helps children learn dexterity/fine motor skills, measuring/math skills, and respect for tools and materials. Thank you, Gramma Buggy, for teaching us about tools and simple machines!
