We paid: $25. Grrr.. I missed the early bird parking discount by only 7 minutes. Not bad considering I didn’t even decide we were going until 8:30 am, but frustrating none the less.
Our experience: I absolutely love this and I’m disappointed we didn’t make it there earlier, and more often, this summer. We had a great time. We arrived just after 10:00am and watched the Wiggleworms performance; the kids even got to shake maracas along with the music. Then we explored some of the other activities – building with blocks, tossing bean bags, experimenting with different items to see what would float or sink in water, and coloring pictures. The kids color all the time at home, but this was especially exciting because they got to use markers; I rarely let them use markers at home because I don’t want to have to clean marker off my walls and furniture! We visited more attractions in Millennium Park (watch for a future post about that) & had a picnic. I’m really sad that this is ending so soon because it’s such a great event; the only downside is the parking (& I’m still not brave enough to take both boys on the train without another adult with me).
