Have you checked out our Children’s Discovery Museum in Saskatoon? If you have kids that are under 10 years old and the weather is not what you want to experience. You should go. It is inside Market Mall, across from the mini golf and it is a lot of fun if you’re a kid, here is what they love best about it:
1) Craft Area
The sweet thing about their craft area, is that they have collected all kinds of different and unique items for kids to create into whatever masterpiece their little hands feel inspired to do. They also display example crafts for your children to try. This area requires your presence so keep this in mind if you bring more than 3 kids with you. (The staff WILL hunt you down! :D)
2) Camping Area
The camping area is a fabulous mock camping area, complete with a real canoe. If you are like most parents, or maybe me, you will HAVE to climb inside the canoe because it’s a canoe and so damn cool! They also have a tent set up, a little pretend fire pit with real wood and trees to compliment their forest theme. Great for kids that love outdoor adventures.
Maybe you have a budding performer?? The Discovery Museum has a dress up area with masks and costumes backstage, so that your child can dress up and do their act on stage.
4) Vet Office Clinic
You probably have a child that will be a doctor when they get older! 😉 The museum has a desk set up, along with an appointment log and a light table with real animal x-ray images.
Budding entrepreneurs will flood to the cashier booth and hand out cash to their friends so that they can have the best deal ever when they buy something. I have never met a child that did not enjoy playing store.
Drums, organs and morraca’s oh my! Get ready to hear some noise because at any given moment random children will be playing beautiful music!
7) Pocketbook Friendly
Admission is only $3.50 per child. It is also a non-profit organization, so their focus is right where it should, on our children.
