Elmo was visiting as part of the Sesame Street Presents: The Body exhibit, now showing at the LSC. Bright, accessible and interactive, The Body teaches young learners all about the human body in a fun, age-appropriate manner. Stations such as The Count's Organ Organ (my favorite- so funny and cute), Digestion With Oscar, and Your Amazing Body with my son's favorites, Bert and Ernie, kept PJ interested and entertained as he learned all about how his insides and outsides work. There was even a replica of the famous steps at 123 Sesame Street, and seeing my son on that iconic stoop connected his childhood with mine in such a sweet way. Sesame Street was such a huge part of my childhood and life as an early learner. It so so exciting for PJ to have the same opportunities, and Sesame Street Presents: The Body offered him the chance to experience Sesame Street in ways that I did not.
We also had the chance to return to a favorite exhibit, Beyond Rubik's Cube! Everything you ever wanted to know about the ins and outs of the most famous puzzle of the 80's is right here! The activities range from simple enough for my 5 year old (4 at his first visit) to complex enough for an adult. PJ is a fan of puzzles, so this hands-on exhibit was right up his alley! You will need to rush if you want to catch this one- Beyond Rubik's Cube will leave the LSC on April 19th!
Full disclosure: The LSC offers a multi-million dollar experience and what does PJ find to play with?
|Yup. That's a stool.|
