All over Michigan there are museums, children’s centers, and all sorts of family-friendly activities. But one that often gets overlooked is the Midland Center for the Arts.
It’s tucked away in Mid-Michigan in the city of Midland and it’s easily accessed from major highways and is pretty close to Dow Gardens, which is another great Michigan location to visit. I’ll admit that I haven’t been to the Midland Center for the Arts but I have no reason for it since we pass by it on our way north often.
This summer they have a great exhibition…one that is sure to please almost all small children. Bob the Builder! This family fun exhibit is open until August 18th, so if you want to check it out you’ll have to hurry!
Bob the Builder – Project Build It!
Bob’s Sunflower Valley comes to life, filled with colorful characters, sensational sets and imagination! All senses will be engaged as boys and girls use hands-on activities to build, learn – and play! Help everybody’s favorite builder and his Can-Do Crew of animated machines get the job done. Can you do it? YES YOU CAN!
There are 2 other great Bob the Builder events that they have coming up soon, too. The first one is Saturday, July 14 from 11 am – 2 pm, called the Build It Bash. They are going to have construction vehicles in the parking lot for kids to see and learn about, as well as all kinds of fun games and activities up in the exhibit. Next, on Thursday, August 9 from 5 – 7 pm, they have Pizza PJs and Play — a pizza dinner with Bob the Builder. Kids and grownups can enjoy dinner together and then play and learn together in the exhibit. Kids are welcome to wear their PJ’s, too. Visit the website for more info about those events.
The Midland Center for the Arts also has many interesting permanent exhibits such as; Restless Earth, Groundworks, Glaciers, Greening and a Life-size Mastodon or Trailblazers, Waterways, Lumberjacks, Farmers, Miners and Chemists.
How neat do those sound for little wonderers? There truly is something for everyone there and could be the perfect place to go to beat the heat or rainy day fun!
How would you like to spend the day? Explore, play, build, and maybe even learn something new?!
