I know Luke and Noah will be going for Building Bridgetown, displaying a 17-foot-high, two-story house, where kids can panel a wall, connect plumbing fixtures, take measurements, work the “button and latch” board, and build with blocks on the custom-designed building table.
Next stop is The Dig Pit which is filled with rubber gravel plus plenty of buckets, shovels, dump trucks and a conveyor belt. They will actually get a full-body sensory experience as they wobble across uneven terrain and dig to China with a fleet of dump trucks.
Then it's on to the Vroom Room where we shall climb behind the wheel of a speeding ambulance, drive the city bus, or race toy cars and trains on the track.
Abbie will probably join in the fun at Water Works where they can crank, funnel, pour, squirt, measure, float! Water Works features a 12-foot high waterfall, a hand-cranked “conveyor belt” that carries water in whimsical recycled objects, a twirling bouquet of kitchen mops and an array of instruments that kids play by spraying the water cannon.
While the boys are in their "manly workshops", Miss Abbie can spend time in The Play It Again Theater where there are costumes and props, along with real stage lighting and sound effects – everything kids need to stage an impromptu skit or star performance!
Heat a grill with coals and brush the rack with oil to prevent the chicken from sticking. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade, sprinkle well with salt and pepper, and grill them skin-side down for about 5 minutes, until nicely browned. Turn the chicken and cook for another 10 minutes, until just cooked through. Remove from the grill to a plate. Cover tightly and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature
