The Christmas Party for the Kinder!

06 Dec

Okay, so this happened a couple of weeks ago.  I am a little behind on blogging about everything that has been happening.  But I thought everyone would like to see this fabulous experience that Lizzie Grace, Sophia and I had.  The school took the kids ages 5 years and younger to the Museo de los Ninos (The Children’s Museum) in San Jose for their Christmas party.  I volunteered to go with Sophia’s class and we had a blast.  Lizzie class went as well, but only one parent could go, so we figured me going with Sophia’s class would be the best idea.  So the school chartered 2 tour buses and we arrived at what looked like a big yellow, medieval castle.  Apparently, this used to be a prison for the worst criminals in Costa Rica and then they made it into a children’s museum.  It was awesome.

We walked into this massive building to a reserved party room where the kids were given popcorn and could play.  Then we divided into classes and were given tours around the museum.  It was so big that we did not even get to see most of it.  We were able to get on the earth quake simulator, so Sophia was able to feel the earthquake, since we slept through the real one 🙂  We also learned about banana and coffee plantations and the history of Costa Rica.  It was really neat.  We hope to go back on a Saturday and spend the day there as a family to see everything.  After our tour we went back to the party area and had pizza and cake and were entertained by a clown.  Then we hopped back on the buses for the trip back to the school.  This was such a fun day for the kids, and I had a great time too 🙂  We will go back again for sure.  Here are some pictures…
