A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of spending the day at COSI (Center of Science and Industry) here in Columbus, Ohio and we had a great time. One of the extra special things my kids got to do while there was take a special sample workshop class. All summer long COSI offers Summer Camps and Workshops for kids of all ages, even the little ones (they start at 6 months) and we had the chance to see what kinds of activities these classes involved. Since our group had kids of various ages they offered 5 different stations for the kids to try out plus they had lots of books out for the kids to look at.
First the class began with a fun name song and then a great book Pete the Cat was read, my kids are now obsessed with this fun CAT and all of his book adventures! Then the real fun began as the kids got to explore the different stations. My older two girls loved learning about bugs and even holding worms and a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach!
My two year old absolutely loved the rainbow pasta, running her hands through it and mixing it up. The staff member kept asking her to find specific colors which she really enjoyed as well!
What kid doesn’t love to build? Check out the awesome foam bricks and rocks, building towers bigger than they are was lots of fun and a great activity for all three of my girls to do together!
Another station was making bubble art a fun thing to do but messy, so glad they got to do it at COSI and not at my house! The kids blow with a straw in the colored bubbles then set a paper on top to make neat art, my girls made several they had lots of fun blowing the bubbles!
Finally they had goo, a mixture of cornstarch and water, for the kids to play in. Again another messy but fun project that I am happy to let my kids do somewhere else as long as I don’t have to clean up the mess!
The kids had a blast at the COSI Workshop and have been begging to do another one! Be sure to check out the great listing and find one that fits your family needs. Prices and times vary but many are as cheap as $5!
