Bob the Builder Comes to the Discovery Science Center


Can we fix it? Yes, we can! I have watched more Bob the Builder episodes than I care to share over the past couple of years. When I learned that Bob the Builder was coming to the Discovery Science Center, we we eager to attend the grand opening "Breakfast with Bob."



Still a Bob the Builder fan, Andrew was excited to play in the new exhibit. I guess you are never too old for Bob the Builder.


Even Daddy got a little too excited about the new exhibit, and spent the day wearing his yellow construction hat too.


Before visitors were welcomed into the new exhibit, The Discovery Science Center provided a continental breakfast on their outdoor patio. There was bagels, oatmeal and plenty of fruit for families to enjoy. It was a nice healthy start to the day.



After breakfast, we first stopped at the craft table. Children were able to enjoy using many different skills including cognitive and fine motor skills to make these picture frames. Learning is always happening at the Discovery Science Center, and many times the children do not even realize they are learning!




Tyler is our bodily-kinesthetic child. His mind learns the best while doing physical activities. While climbing this rock wall he was able to count the rocks, use estimation skills and just have fun. The rock wall is always Tyler's first stop at the Discovery Science Center.


Then it was time to meet Bob! The kids were over the moon excited to get  a chance to have a special meet n' greet with him before playing in the exhibit.



Children can help the Bob the Builder crew by cutting, hammering and building together. There is an opportunity to help repair Bob's workshop sink, and learn about recycling all inside of Bob's workshop.



Children can enjoy helping Bob's big fix-it plan in the construction of his mobile home. The environment is rich in objects, shapes, sounds, colors and hands-on activities where children learn the art of teamwork.


Children can immerse into a magical outdoor world with Wendy's Caravan. Enjoy planting flowers in her garden, learn about the solar panels on her caravan and the 3 Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle together!




One of the funnest parts of the exhibit is Farmer Pickle's Water Pump. Children can help Farmer Pickles use rubber balls that represent reused and recycled water to pump and collect into buckets. Children have an chance to learn about the importance of using limited water at the interactive exhibit.











The Bob the Builder exhibit will be at the Discovery Science Center until January 6th. Adult admission is $14.95 and child admission is $12.95.
