In this post: A day trip to the Interactive Neighborhood for Kids, INK, a children’s museum in Gainesville, Ga.
Hello, dear ones! My mom, the kids, and I found a gem a few hours away. The Interactive Neighborhood for Kids (INK) was worth the trip. We spent three hours exploring the children’s museum. You get to explore it a bit quicker and from the comfort of home!
What’s better than pretending to be a fireman, doctor, and pilot? Playing pretend with REAL doctor’s equipment, a REAL fire truck, and a REAL airplane!
I’m so excited to share this trip with you! I apologize for the low quality of some of the pictures. I left my camera at home and had to use Mom’s phone. I was able to get several pictures though so I’m happy. You can plan your own trip to INK by visiting the link below:
Toddler Castle Area to warm up for the big stuff
INK is huge and a bit overwhelming. The toddler room helps ease little ones into the idea of role play.
The Neighborhood- Kids and adults alike can’t help but fall in love with this role playing dream! Kiddos get to explore real adult jobs and use real equipment (safely of course!).
Nana and Leeland taking a “ride”.
The Vet’s Office
Music Center and dress up theater
The Grocery Store- This was one of my favorites. The scanner really worked!
Leeland really loved shopping! I wonder what wild recipes he has! Ha!
The Bank- The nifty atm worked except it wouldn’t connect to get money.
Michael had fun with the credit card while Leeland answered phones!
The Beauty Parlor- for the young at heart. Nana and Leeland had fun.
Michael the X-ray technician!
Michael- the Dentist!
I don’t really smile this much at the dentist. I’m glad there were no drills!
Nana the Doctor! My mom is a CNA but this day she became a doctor. She really looks the part!
Fire trucks, police cars, oh my! (Not pictured- Train play)
Police Car and ATV- We were all amazed by the real vehicles.
The neatest part- the lights worked!
The Fire Truck and (not pictured) 911 Call Center
Down on the farm!
There was also a farmer’s market with felt vegetables.
The Post Office, Recording Studio, Airport, Boat, and Human Body Area
The REAL Airplane-we could control the tail fins! Michael loved this part the most.
Inside a real airplane!
Leeland’s favorite part-go figure! Ha!
All I got of the Post Office- I love the wooden letters!
Out to sea with Michael!
The Movie Studio
A brief encounter in Space!
Inside the Human Body!
We circled back to the middle to have fun in the 50’s Diner!
I think this was my favorite section or at least it tied with the grocery store.
I baby wiped this one lol.
Thanks for hanging out with us! God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
