Have you heard about the new Children’s Museum in Joshua, TX?  Imagination Station is a hands-on center for children to explore, create and have fun!
 
My family went out to Imagination Station this week, where we found fun, indoor activities that kept my children involved and happy.  It was great to see my 10 year old off of an electronic for the day.  My 7 and 4 year old children didn’t want’ to leave, after almost 3 hours of being at the attraction.  My husband even tried his hand at the accordion and drew a bunny that even ‘ol Bugs would be proud of.
 
With 6 rooms (or stations) available, there was something for everyone in attendance, regardless of age.  We started off in the music room:

Once I convinced my children it was time to move on, they decided to try the light room next:

My children had fun in the sand and water room, too!  All children love to play in the sand – and I didn’t even have to bring a beach blanket (or apply sunscreen!)  I loved the fact that the sand was clean, and kind of wish there was a place to wash your feet off before putting your shoes back on.

With one room left to explore, we headed to the block room!  I think my boys’ eyes lit up with excitement!  Seeing the legos, k’nex, a train table and wooden blocks, they both ran to sit down.  I am sure their minds were already running with things to build before my daughter fully entered the room, though she had fun building things, too!

Before we left, we made sure to go down the 11 foot slide (recommended for children 5+).  I think my daughter screamed a few times on the way down, so I’m not sure how it feels to go down that fast!  (She did say it hurts when you land.)

  1. If you go back take some baby powder with you. It will get the sand off feet in a flash.
