Can you tell this Boca Mom how to get to Sesame Street?

Sunny day, sweepin’ the clouds away, on my way to where the air is sweet! And right now, the summer air is sweetest at the Museum of Discovery & Science in Fort Lauderdale. This is where you’ll find friendly neighbors – and the brand-new Sesame Street Presents: The Body exhibit on display until Sept. 8.

 

The Sesame Street Muppets exhibit presents an exciting collection of hands-on, interactive multimedia experiences that allow your kids to explore the human body and how to keep it healthy.  Each area has multiple activities that provide age-appropriate and exciting learning opportunities for children at a variety of developmental levels. And most importantly: it’s air-conditioned.

I always find it a little suspicious when I (potentially) have more fun than my own child at a kids’ event or museum. But, that’s exactly what happened when we attended the exhibit’s opening day.

IT’S REALLY SESAME STREET!!!

That’s what I screamed in my head (or maybe out loud) when I saw the interactive Sesame Street set. Yes, Oscar’s trash can makes noise. The buzzers at the front door buzz. Some Muppets even greet visitors through the speaker!

My daughter on the other hand was most excited about the Elmo’s Worldinteractive play station. Here, younger kids can learn how to tie their shoes, visit Dorothy (Elmo’s pet fish) and dress Elmo up in various outfits on his magnetic wall. Our toddlers didn’t want to leave.

But, there was so much more to see at Sesame Street Presents: The Body. Children of all ages have the opportunity to learn about their organs at The Count’s musical organ. They can practice hand washing and tooth brushing atErnie’s Rub-a-Dub Tub. They can even learn about the complete process of digestion with Oscar the Grouch.

It was a fantastic exhibit. My expectations were exceeded and all three kids we brought napped hard on the drive home. I’m glad that this Boca Mom found her way to Sesame Street.

The Museum of Discovery & Science is located at 401 S.W. Second St., Fort Lauderdale // 954/467-0046.

This exhibit is a result of Sesame Workshop’s initiative, Healthy Habits for Life, created in response to the current childhood obesity crisis in the United States. Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, and Thinkwell Design & Production of Burbank, CA created this interactive experience that is locally sponsored by PNC Bank.
