Not In Jersey: Spring Break Adventure #3–Crown Center Spring Break Adventure #3–Crown Center - Not In Jersey

Spring Break Adventure #3–Crown Center

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Last week, I shared our spring break adventure at Union Station. That same day, we headed over to Crown Center’s Funville exhibit. Crown Center’s free play area changes exhibits every 3 months or so. This one is all about careers, or what you may want to be.

“What do you want to be when you grow up-a zookeeper, an astronaut, a firefighter, a school teacher, a veterinarian, a football player, a racecar driver or even the President of the United States? Kids can experience all these grown-up occupations and more, in a kid friendly environment. They can forecast the weather, do magic tricks, work in a barbershop, ride a tractor and even ride a bull. In "FUNVILLE," the most important job is to have fun!”

I did not think it would take us a long time to visit, but the kids actually loved it! They tried out every single option available and I was impressed by the details in each section. Hence, another overload of pictures!

And finally, all 3 as car repair people!

If you made it through all of that, thank you. Do you think your kids would enjoy a place like this? Which display would catch their attention more than others? My kids played the longest at the circus, the school, the racecar, and the car repair shop!

PS All 3 kids are wearing Gymboree in these pictures. Gabbie is all Gymbo minus the boots, which are Old Navy. Zachary is wearing Naartjie pants and Simon’s pants are Circo!
