Hey! It’s me … PlayDrMom again! This time I’m here to share another one of my favorite places to go with the kids … Lloyd A. Stage Nature Center, in Troy, Michigan.
It’s been a couple of weeks since our last visit to this local Nature Center … and I’m sure, by [...]
I’m back again to share a wonderfully fun place that’s completely unique and a truly special place in Michigan.
Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum is an amazing combination of an arcade and museum … literally PACKED with a huge collection of coin-operated games. “Some are exceptionally rare, and others [...]
It’s me, PlayDrMom, and I’m back to share another one of our favorite places to visit. This time it’s a wonderful place that I’ve been visiting since I was a child … Cranbrook Institute of Science which is located in Bloomfield Hills, MI. The science institute is part of (and located within) the campus [...]
I am so happy to be guest writing for this series! I have tons of local (Michigan) places I want to share, but funny enough, the first place I have gotten a chance to visit and blog on is out-of-state. While on our summer road trip as a family, we made a stop [...]

A couple months back, Nico was 28 months old, I decided to pull out marshmallows and toothpicks for a quick activity.
I showed him to poke the toothpick in the marshmallow because his first instinct was to eat them, lol.
I built a few things, we talked about shapes [...]
Found this new blog the other day, Growing A Jeweled Rose, a mom of 2 adorable little girls showing us a bunch of different fun activities. One activity stuck to my mind: Sensory bath! Nico has been against baths for about the last year or so, only wanting to take showers, but lately [...]
So after visiting the butterfly house for a good 45 minutes, we went to see the little farm on the same propriety.It’s an educational farm, where they offer tours and activities for school group, of course on a Sunday (the day we went) they don’t do those but you still can do around [...]
On October 9th 2011 (so pre-blog era) we went to visit a butterfly house (the place is called Ferme Guyon and they are also on Facebook.). I don’t know how many of those exist out there but I had never heard of one before. They are housed in a greenhouse type building (sorry [...]
