This post was created as a part of my ambassadorship with the Minnesota Children’s Museum.
My children live to play. One of my five-year-old son’s favorite pastimes is to fight imaginary bad guys. They could be robots. They could be monsters. I have a hard time determining exactly “who” these guys are all the time. But what I do know is that he considers it an awful day if he doesn’t have the opportunity to play this imaginary game.
At the heart of the MN Children’s Museum is a commitment to encouraging play. It seems so simple, right? Children love to play. But in today’s fast-paced, busy world not all children have precious free time to explore and create their own fun. This museum in downtown St. Paul takes simple props and allows children to create their own fun. Water, pretend food, bricks, and tunnels are a few examples of free form ways for children to express their creativity and imagination.
I’m pleased to announce that I am a new ambassador with the Minnesota Children’s Museum. A partnership with such a positive organization so aligned with my parenting practices is a perfect match. I’ll be sharing special exhibits, but most importantly the creation of the new and improved building. Construction is set to begin in October of this year and will culminate when the new museum opens in January of 2017. During this time of adding great amenities and new experiences the museum will mostly remain open. Since the current design is such a winner with my boys, I can’t wait to see the finished results of this new reimagined museum.
