One of the hardest parts of being a stay at home mom of a toddler is finding activities that we both enjoy. Fortunately the Atlanta History Center has an event once a month that manages to do just that – and is educational at the same time!
Magic Mondays are perfect for kids aged 18 months to 5 years, and the employees at the Atlanta History Center really go out of their way to include everyone in the activities. Activities include a tour of some part of the Museum (in the past it has included a scavenger hunt in their exhibits and a holiday tour of the Swan House), a craft project and a snack, story time or music, and free time to explore.
If you haven’t checked out the Atlanta History Center, this is a perfect introduction for both you and your kids. Tour Metropolitan Frontiers, a history of Atlanta which has exhibits that will appeal to little ones (an old fire engine generally gets the most positive response from my son!) and give you some insight into this great city of ours.
So check out the next Magic Mondays, enjoying the animals at Tullie Smith Farm, from sheeps to chickens, and start your week off with a baaa-ng!
