Places to play in PA: Hands on House

We have been members here for a year and a half and I can honestly say each time is a little different and we always leave satisfied!

One of the best things about it is I dont have to go into the city and it's easy to get to all by myself with all 3 kiddos in tow-- yay! They also keep it simple and familiar only changing two of the many play areas. I love this because theres always osmeting a little new and yet at the same time my kids keep building their skills in each of the other rooms.

One of our favorites is the grocery store-- they love shopping, punching the cash register buttons, and following the little lists they have for them. Another favorite is the thing-a-ma-gig room where there is a mechanical assembly line to work on and lots of other math related things like sorting and building ramps. All 3 of my kids get completely asorbed in finishing their tasks and experiencing the joy of a job well done.

One downer is that on the weekdays they close at 4 and sometimes we could def. stay longer and the other would be that the paint in the face painting section is not eye friendly and we have had problems getting it out of our clothes, but that being said, it is a wonderful afternoon each and everytime.

We have visited there once, and really enjoyed it. My son loved the yoke that is used to haul buckets of milk. and my daughter enjoyed the dress up area.
Did you know that Longwood Gardens is free with voucher on May 6?
