Thanks to Megan and her family for visiting the Long Island Children’s Museum on behalf of Raising 3 Savvy Ladies. Tickets were provided for her family.
My family and I love to visit the Long Island Children’s Museum (LICM) in Garden City. There’s never a shortage of interesting, hands-on activities for kids of all ages. Even I could keep myself entertained there!
My husband and I spent much of the day there with our 5 year old and 21 month old during the 20th birthday celebration. It was fantastic. There were fun birthday decorations, candle-making crafts, performers like dancers and clowns. Puppeteer Liz Joyce, the first performer to sell out the LICM Theater did a terrific performance of “King Midas.”
The special events topped what the LICM always has to offer, lots of exhibits for endless fun and learning.
The LICM always has a new themed exhibit on the first floor, and the current one is the best yet, in our opinion. “Broken? – Fix It!” has great hands-on activities that teach kids how everyday items are fixed, like cars, bicycles, jewelry and shoes. My son spent about 45 minutes with other kids building a “brick” wall and tearing it down.
I let our LICM membership lapse, but I think I’m going to renew it and take advantage of all the winter activities. This will be a great place to go during winter break!
