So the long Thanksgiving weekend is rapidly approaching an John and I will be heading up to Hilltop House in Gold Beach. John's daughter is grown and married with kids of her own and together we have six — of the four legged king that is – Cody the Golden Retriver; Max the Black Lab and Jackson the German Shepherd and then there Tommy the yellow Tabby and John Henry the silver Tabby and Jake my sixteen year old Yellow Headed Amazon parrot. Anyway, I am diverting from my story. I do have a point — I have a great suggestion of where to take you two legged kids for some fun.
Take them to Science Works, a hand-on Museum in Ashland. Here is what is in store for you if you go there.
ScienceWorks is a fun, engaging science center where kids and adults can rediscover wonder. The innovative museum features interactive exhibits, an outdoor garden, live science shows and dynamic programs year-round.
ScienceWorks offers educational programs for students and teachers, as well as public programs including workshops, lectures, birthday parties, summer festivals and science camps.
Here is just one attraction:
Discovery Island features:
The Lagoon – A multilevel water table with dams, water wheels, and pumps.
Shipwreck Playhouse – A ship shaped playhouse with pulleys, periscopes, flags, and a see-through deck.
Coconut Hollow - A forrest of trees that launch air-powered balls through vacuum tubes to different spots on the island
Crawlers Cove – An enclosed area for children 2 and under with ramps, a crawl tube, hidden objects and storytelling activities.
Thatched Hut – Nursing mothers' area and parent meeting space.
Here is a link to their website . I hope you enjoy it!.
