Brayden an inquisitive baby full of energy. Daycare does a great job of keeping him stimulated so I decided to start integrating more experiences into our home life starting this weekend with coloring and a trip to the Nevada Discovery Museum.
First, our little Picasso spent some time drawing up a mini masterpiece.
This was fun for about five minutes until he decided to taste the crayons. I had hoped this would keep him interested for longer but that’s life with a little boy. I also bought finger paints but we’ll break those out once I find a big sheet I can use as a drop cloth for that impending color explosion. (Note: I promise to post on how that goes once I’m brave enough to do it!)
After art time and nap, Brian joined us for Brayden’s very first trip to the Nevada Discovery Museum. It’s a small science-y type kids museum that recently opened here in Reno. It’s really geared towards older children but little ones can also have a bit of fun as well.
Brayden loved the magnifying mirror wall,
…petting the critter statue thing (gopher?) in the Under the Stars room…
and spinning around in the baby bowl thing (sorry, I’m apparently at a loss for correct terms today).
Here’s a short two-minute video of clips from various highlights of the experience:
All in all, a fun time. But I think Brayden’s still more suited for the Gymboree set which we’ll be trying out in the next couple weeks. As much we enjoyed exposing him to all this, I think bubbles and parachutes are more his speed at the moment.
Have a great week and a fabulous Thanksgiving!
