Scitech Toddler Fest

Every year Scitech holds a two week toddler fest. The aim of ToddleFest is for toddlers to experience a range of science activities specifically created for kids under 5.

There was so much going on, hundreds of activities and hundreds of very noisy toddlers having a great time!

Ethan has been really interested in shadows lately! Every morning when we walk to "school" (daycare) he says hello to his shadow. Every night we read some books in bed by torchlight and we make shadow puppets on the wall. So when we saw the shadow exhibition.... with dinosaurs  as well... Ethan was in his element. He LOVED it! 
 Then there was the petting zoo, which of course we all knew Ethan would like. Unfortunately he seems to think that the guinea pig is a "big mouse" and his opinion won't be swayed otherwise! 
 Ethan was able to get up close and personal with the fish in the tank via a dome underneath.
 And we were all able to experience the wonders of electricity (which is good since both Jason and I work in the electricity industry).
 There were car ramps to experiment with - the aim was to build a car/truck and see what type of construction would make it down the ramp fastest.
 Ethan loved this next exhibition....As you moved the rubber pieces into different shapes, the lights above overlaid contour lines.
Some activities were not learning based but purely fun for the toddler!
 This is just a snapshot of the activities we had fun with over the few hours we spent at Scitech.... well worth the visit.

As you can see from the shot below.... Ethan was exhausted at the end of it! (not that it meant he had a day sleep though - but that's a post for another day).

I'm glad Ethan enjoyed Toddlerfest! I'd hoped to take Caitlin but it just wasn't going to happen. Hoping to take her next year.
