All over Michigan there are museums, children’s centers, and all sorts of family friendly activities. But one that I think gets overlooked is the Midland Center for the Arts. It’s tucked away in Mid-Michigan in the city of Midland and it pretty easily accessed from major highways! Also… it’s pretty close to Dow Gardens which is another great Michigan location to visit! Anyway…. I’ll admit that I haven’t been to the Midland Center for the Arts and I have no reason for it either when it’s no more than an hour away! This summer they have a great exhibition though… one that is sure to please almost all small children. Bob the Builder!
Bob the Builder – Project Build It! Bob’s Sunflower Valley comes to life, filled with colorful characters, sensational sets and imagination! All senses will be engaged as boys and girls use hands-on activities to build, learn – and play! Help everybody’s favorite builder and his Can-Do Crew of animated machines get the job done. Can you do it? YES YOU CAN!
This family fun exhibit is open until August 18th so if you want to check it out you’ll have to hurry! There are 2 other great Bob the Builder events that they have coming up soon! The first one is Saturday, July 14 from 11 am – 2 pm, called the Build It Bash. They are going to have construction vehicles in the parking lot for kids to see and learn about! They are also going to have all kinds of fun games and activities up in the exhibit. Next, on Thursday, August 9 from 5 – 7 pm, they have Pizza PJs and Play! It’s a pizza dinner with Bob the Builder. Kids and grownups can enjoy dinner together and then play and learn together in the exhibit. Kids are welcome to wear their PJs! You can visit the website for more info about those events.
The Midland Center for the Arts has many interesting permanent exhibits such as; Restless Earth, Groundworks, Glaciers, Greening and a Life-size Mastodon or Trailblazers, Waterways, Lumberjacks, Farmers, Miners and Chemists. I really believe that there is something for everyone there and it’s the perfect place to go to beat the heat or rainy day fun!
How would you like to spend the day checking everything out there and of course making great memories? Explore, play, build, and maybe even learn something new!
