Over Christmas Break, we went to the Hutchings Museum of Natural History. They were doing a special Shark Day. It was so much fun! They had so many special activities for the kids and just went all out. We will definitely be going again to some of their special events.
Shark Puppet Show
It was a cute show that followed the story of Wizard of Oz, except the shark was looking for his name. At the end of the show, the kids all got to enter in some names for the two new sharks at the museum. Adam's names didn't get chosen, but I thought his names were pretty cute. He suggested, Shrekey and Baloo.
They had such fun characters.
After the show, they got to go fishing for some fun prizes.
Most of the characters from the show were in the new aquariums. The sharks are really small, but they were cool. I was surprised at how interactive the animlas were in the tank. Adam and Brandon loved watching them and finding all sorts of crazy looking sea creatures.
Then they had crafts. All of the volunteers were so happy and helpful. They made it a really fun event.
After we did all the activities we decided to take a look around the museum. There was some neat history there. We found an old jail cell, and Adam climbed on in.
I didn't know what to expect and didn't know if we would stay long at the museum, but we ended up staying for 1 1/2 hours and the kids were thoroughly entertained!
