9.27.2021: Google very recently changed drive links for security reasons, so you may find that when you click on a link for one of my printables that you need to submit a share request. PLEASE only submit one share request per item! These have to be manually confirmed and I will get to them when I get to them. I promise you that sending me 12 requests in rapid succession will not make that happen faster, lol! I do not sit on my computer waiting around to send people instant shares of freebies. Thank you so much for your patience as I try to sort out this latest Google mess.

Grand Rapids Children’s Museum

One of the places we visited in Michigan was the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum (GRCM), 2 levels of fun stuff for the kiddies.










We have also visited the Children’s Museum in Lincoln, NE.  If I had to compare, I’d say that we preferred the Lincoln CM, there seemed to be a bigger variety of things to do (lots of big impressive things, too, like making a hot air balloon go up), a lot more vehicles to pretend to ride (car, motorcycle, etc.), and the facilities seemed to be in better condition overall.  But, we did have a couple of hours of fun at GRCM.

It was very busy on the day we visited, lots of day care groups and other families (we were there with a group ourselves).  The noise was a little overwhelming for my special needs kid.  He did find some things he enjoy, as you can see.  The girls both had lots of fun, but there wasn’t much there to interest the 12-year-old.

Optimally, I’d recommend it for ages 2-9.  There’s enough there to keep them busy for a couple of hours.  Thursday night is family night and you can get in for $1.50/person between 5pm and 8 pm (a super deal compared to their regular prices).
