San Diego Children’s Museum

Posted on 12. Feb, 2010 in For Kids, Fun

Here is an idea to do with the kiddos on this long holiday weekend in San Diego — Head over to the New Children’s Museum in downtown. We were there over 4.5 hours and the kids wanted to do more! Jumpy, lots of crafts, clay, painting, rock climbing, climbing ropes, tons of animal info.  Great for ages from 3-11 or so.
