Providence Children's Museum

Summer is officially over but that doesn't mean the fun has to be over! We obviously won't have as many opportunities to be outside; the beach and splash pad are done for the year but we're always looking for indoor activities that will bring us through the winter!

We love The Cape Cod Children's Museum but figured we could try out another so we grabbed some library passes and headed off to the Providence Children's Museum!

The museum is only a short 20-30 minute drive away and is perfect for an afternoon.
There are many exhibits, including Magna-tiles, wooden blocks, complete with hard hats, a Space area, historical "rooms" that show the developmental time periods of Providence, and a boat that they can pretend to steer!


We have three favorite areas.
The first is the under 4 room call Littlewoods.
It's a gated area designed just for smaller kids.  There are marble ramps, a "cave" tunnel, and a "tree", complete with slide!
And that sign... love.


We also love the water area! We saved this for last because I had a feeling they would get soaked. The aprons are great but sure enough....


We had so much fun!
