Life with Leo

“Finny, let’s watch TV!”

Filed under: Kids in museums — Tags: , , — fehlhaber @ 10:50 am

Yes, that’s what Leo said when he saw the TV at the Wenham Museum exhibit on old toys. They didn’t sit there long, but they enjoyed it while it lasted.

While Finn ironed (this will make Uncle Stevie in London proud!!), Leo dressed up went in the playhouse. Then Finn and Leo set up shop, but eventually they had a fight over who got to run the cash register.

Steph found a great article about why imaginative play, like they are doing here (in 3 out of 4 photos), is so important and why kids are doing less and less of it (blame the other photo).

Here’s the story (you can listen or read):

  3. it drives me insane how much TV there is at museums. The MOS is the worst offender. Watching kids watching TV of live snakes when there are REAL LIVE snakes in cages doing absolutely crazy things is completely maddening… we need to start a NO TV museum revolution…
