A museum employee tells HollyBaby.com exclusively about all of the hands-on, imagination inspiring activities that Jace got to do while on his little adventure.
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans is trying hard to introduce her 2-year-old son Jace Evans to as many experiences as possible while he’s young. Jenelle, along with two of her girlfriends, took Jace to The Children’s Museum of Wilmington, N.C. on Dec. 3 for an afternoon of fun-filled hands-on activities.
“taking Jace with Victoria anddd Hannahhh to the Children’s Museum of Wilmington. ? :D SO EXCITED [sic],” Jenelle wrote on her Facebook Fan Page on Dec. 3.
“They were here for about about an hour,” a museum employee tells HollyBaby.com exclusively. “They played around in our exhibits. They seemed to be having a really good time. I heard him laughing around from floor to floor. They seemed to be having a blast. She was smiling.”
Jace checked out all of the exhibits. “We have a pirate ship that that you try outfits on in a little pirate dress up area,” describes the employee. “We have an art room and our art educator puts new stuff in there every week.”
Jace got to pretend to be a chef. “We have a little international diner with a baby sized pretend grill and food,” shares the employee. “We have a children’s cooking club on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They do little mix-up portions from different countries every week. They do story-based [meals] too.”
Jace “was just upstairs in our international chef and food prep area,” says the employee. “It’s pretend. He’s not really grilling.”
Jenelle also took Jace pretend grocery shopping. “I know they were in our grocery store for a while,” reveals the employee. “It’s a baby grocery store. They can check out. They like to push the carts around. We have pretend fruits and vegetables, empty boxes of oatmeal and he can fill his cart with and then check out.”
There is also “a glow-in-the-dark spaceship,” adds the employee. “It’s in our glow room. We also have a magnetic minds research center. It’s basically tactile tables and color mixing stations where kids can make different colors of water. There is rock station where they can look at rocks. It’s cool sciency hands-on [activities].”
Admission to the museum is $8 per person, including children.
