Hello hello! So let’s rewind almost a month ago now (seriously, where does February go!?) to our day at Cape Cod Children’s Museum. Coops and I have been there before during the summer and I highly recommend it if you are spending any time on Cape Cod. I was curious to find out how it would stand up to the winter months when less visitors are around. We were pleased to see that it was just as great as the last time we visited.
The entrance fee is $9 per person, which is pretty inexpensive. I was so excited to bring Coops because he had a ball the last time we were there. This time it was like he remembered the place (although I’m not sure that is possible at 2) because he ran right in and straight over to the dinosaur table. He has been pretty obsessed with dinosaurs lately since we saw them at the zoo and since I downloaded a fun dinosaur puzzle game onto the iPad.
We saw some of our old favorites like the big submarine, which is still really cool with all of its sights and sounds!
And of course the giant tractor was a huge hit to drive around. As well as the big ship!
However, I was so excited that Cooper explored totally new things this time around. For example, he loved checking out the treehouse, which I couldn’t convince him to climb last time!
He also tried this massive xylophone that wasn’t even there last time we visited and it was so cool to see him playing music.
He also showed a great interest in their under the sea set up, although he was a little scared of the lobsters, which he called “bugs!”
Even though he had tried out the big wooden train last time, this time we rode in style with our fireman hat. There are a lot of opportunities for the kids to dress-up as firemen or sea fishermen but Cooper just isn’t into dressing up that much. I was pretty excited when he thought wearing the hat would be cool!
We also tried out the fishing boat. It was so cool because there were “fishing rods” that had a magnet attached at the end and then there were wooden fish with a magnet in this barrel that the kids could catch with their rods.
By far our favorite part of the museum was, of course, the cars table. The best part was that there was a rocking chair and magazines right next to it so even I got a little R&R!
The Museum also had a music and dancing program on while we were there but Cooper was either a bit shy or too preoccupied with the toys to get involved. Although the other kids seemed to enjoy it! This one was definitely a keeper and we will be back!
