Magic and Memorable Moments
Children's children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.
This past weekend, we enjoy having our oldest granddaughter, Virginia Rose, stay with us. She is so excited when I tell her we will attend a special event, Museum Magic, at the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History, which is located right here in Kennesaw. We are truly blessed to have this marvelous asset, home to the famous General, right in our backyard!
So what is Museum Magic? Children of all ages are invited to travel to different stations throughout the venue, and create all kinds of Halloween-themed crafts. Our first stop is goody bag making.
Little Miss I'm-in-a-Hurry draws her jack o' lantern eyes on the bottom of her bag. We share a laugh over that!
After Virginia tries her hand at writing with a quill pen,
it's on to wand making!
It's amazing what a few ribbons and glitter can do!
We wander through the museum until we arrive at the classroom area. Here, volunteers are helping children to make magic potions -
and Virginia's favorite - slime!
She couldn't wait to play with it when we got home!
We drop into the theater briefly to watch a bit of Monsters, Inc., then it's off to candle making. Virginia is fascinated.
And here's her final product -
Don't think we can burn this twisty thing!
And of course, our tour wouldn't be complete without a trip to the gift shop. There are so many unique items to attract the eyes of both children and adults. Virginia zones in on a colorful display of "gems."
When I see that a full bag of these is only $5.99, I tell Virginia go for it. She is absolutely thrilled! Here are the treasures she chooses:
I still can't believe she crammed this many "gems" into this tiny bag!
Yes, our trip to the museum is both memorable and magical. An experience, I'm sure, our Princess "Elsa" will remember for a long, long time.
