Atlanta Activities: Sid The Science Kid at Children’s Museum of Atlanta
Summer has ended and fall is upon us! I am always on the lookout for fun adventures for our little family – especially those that cater to younger children. Rhory and Rhett both have different interests and abilities but a lot of the times we go places *together* so I try to meet both their needs. Recently we have discovered Children’s Museum of Atlanta and it fits the bill for both kiddos – and really a wide range of ages! The newest exhibit is the Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit! Please note: I did receive tickets in return for my review of their latest exhibit.
Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit!
Some of your kids may have seen Sid The Science Kid series on PBS Kids TV! The latest exhibit at Children’s Museum of Atlanta brings Sid to real life. Kids step in to “Sid’s” world to investigate and explore some real-world and every day science questions in Sid’s home, at school in the Super Fab Lab and on the playground! Rhory and Rhett really loved exploring his home where they played in the kitchen and learned about using their senses. They also liked playing in his bedroom where they learned about motion and launching toys off of his bed! The whole exhibit allows kids to explore simple machines, the laws of motion, magnetism, air power and the five senses. Some of this was obviously over my kids level of understanding but they were learning while playing and probably had no idea!

Children’s Museum of Atlanta
Sid the Science Kid: Super-Duper Exhibit is just ONE of the many things going on at the museum! They have some permanent exhibits that the kids really loved. Fundamentally Food is an exhibit that allows children to pretend they are a chef at “Waffle House”, go grocery shopping, ride a tractor, milk a cow, and several other fun areas! Gateway to the World allows children to view a globe of the world, launch rockets, and climb through the layers of the Earth. Tools For Solutions was where Rhett found his happy place – a boy and his blocks! In this exhibit kids can create skyscrapers with their city blocks, move balls through their GIANT ball machine and even attend the Build-It-Lab. In addition, the other permanent exhibits include Leaping into Learning, Let Your Creativity Flow, and Step Up to Science. You can read all about them *here*. One thing I love about the museum is that EVERYTHING is an opportunity for learning and exploration.
