Today, Aunty M and I took our 5 kids and their cousin K to Exsite at the Waikato Museum followed by a picnic at the newly rebuilt Memorial Park. Exsite is a hands-on area perfect for the kids to learn and have fun at the same time, so many different activities to keep them occupied for hours!
There is another part downstairs that has an earthquake booth that gives you an idea of what it would be like, it looked quite scary! And you can learn all about the Waikato River, it's natural inhabitants and surrounding factors. The kids each got a bat mask to color and cut out and coloring in posters!
Next stop, Memorial Park. Such a beautiful day for a picnic and a play in the new park! Next time I will make sure we have a change of clothes and towels, today we didn't even think of that so the kids had to only paddle thru the water. But there are plenty of other little gardens for them to explore and the aviary is again full of beautiful birds. So much fun for the kids!
