|Chicago Children’s Museum – putting out a “fire” while learning fire safety|
In Chicagoland, we have so much to do! But, it does get hard, in the winter with two little ones. One family day, we were feeling pretty desperate, so we decided to plunk down the money and go to the DuPage Children’s Museum in downtown Naperville. http://www.dupagechildrensmuseum.org/ – Admission is $8.50 per person, it would have ended up being $36 for one day. So, instead, we became a member for under a hundred dollars for the family. For a year, your entire family can visit over 150 museums nationwide, as many times as you want! Yeah!
|lots of large muscle activities – great for boys with lots of energy!|
So far, we have visited the DuPage Children’s Museum, Chicago Children’s Museum located on Navy Pier, Kohl Children’s Museum in Glenview, and Minnesota Children’s Museum in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Having museums that we can go to in Minnesota (where my family lives) and Ohio (where my husband’s family lives) is a great bonus! Finally, a kid-friendly, free activity we can do on vacation. LOVIN’ IT!
|do it yourself bowling – means daddy picks up the pins|
All the pictures are from the Chicago Children’s Museum located on Navy Pier. We brought a picnic lunch and ate out at the end of the pier. Then, we rode our bikes all over the pier before going into the museum. The museum will also validate your parking, so you can park for a reduced rate.
