roaming around ROM

We took advantage of my DD’s March break to visit some of Toronto’s cultural attractions.  On a typical day, there are not a lot of kid’s activities that would make it really worth our while to visit.  But because it was March break, there were lots of interesting activities set up especially for bored kids looking for something to do, ha!

Our first stop for her week-long vacation  was at the Royal Ontario Museum (or the ROM).  I have been to this place a handful of times and did not find many things that might interest my daughter.  But for the March break, they converted one wing of the second floor into various stations where kids could enjoy different activities... fishing, dusting off fossils to uncover dinosaur bones, tattoo station, dressing up for a photo that will literally take you back to history, origami, scavenger hunt, dinosaur-building puzzles and many more.  And since it is located downtown near a subway station, it was better to take the train which is always something my daughter prefers over her car seat.  

Before we had our daughter, we used to live downtown close to where the city action is.  We took this chance to walk around the building we used to call home.  It was amazing to see how much that place has changed... so many new places to eat and shop.  Definitely brought back lots of sweet memories.

Anywho, here is my layout...

I used Simple Stories patterned paper and sticker elements as well as Papertrey’s modern alphabet dies.
