Scitech silhouettes.....


One of the many fun things about having great nieces and nephews means that now and then you get invited along to some fun places that might look a little odd if you visited without a toddler in tow! Places designed especially for curious three to seven year olds like Discover Land at Scitech in the City West centre. My three year old great nephew was slightly distracted by the whizz, bang, boom of it all, but he did pull up short here at the light and silhouette screen, made even more fun when he found a box full of props to create many different fun shapes. It's a long weekend here in Perth with the temperature soaring to 34C tomorrow and along with unwanted announcements on the radio about the long, very hot dry summer coming up, I'm starting to dread it already! Hope your week gets off to a good start, take care and stay safe.....To see more silhouettes from around the world click here.

  3. Oh, how fun! I love it!! And what a terrific place to take the young ones to!! When I was teaching in grade school I tried to find places like this to take my classes to -- as well as my own kids! Hope you had a great weekend and have an equally great week ahead!

    1. Also, what made the deer run away? Me! They got tired of me creeping ever closer and hightailed it out of there. :)

  7. Oh cool! I wanna play there too. How do they make all those colors??

    After going through science museums for kids with my littlies, I always think I should go back alone someday.

  10. There certainly are a few things only light can do. These are wonderful, wonderful images. Please have a good new month ahead. p.s. nearly same temperature over here.

  11. That looks such fun. I'm looking forward to when my granddaughter is a bit older and we can play like this. Regarding your summer and hot weather on the way... we shall do a deal... I shall visit here for sunshine and to be cheered up. You can visit my blog through our long, dark cold days, to get cooled down - I shall endeavour to make winter look attractive! We're never satisfied, are we?

  13. Makes me wish that I was a care-free kid again! I am not looking forward to our winter - snow, cold, yuck!

  14. Nice.... when one expects 'silhouette' to be black, love it that here's a multicoloured one!

  15. Aw, what sweet and fun shots! Makes me want to shrink myself to that size again! I love those psychedelic, colorful multi-silhouettes, perfect for theme day.:) (We're supposed to be done with our long hot summer, given it's autumn, but still getting a few too-humid/sultry days!)

  17. A very good idea - chromatic silhouettes. I wonder if it confused or stimulated the child.

  18. So nice to see kids having fun, this picture is adorable and you got wonderful effects, kind of psychedelic colors! I like it very much!
    Hugs and a nice day dear Gracie!

  31. Fantastic! What a great entry, Grace!

    P.S. Sorry I haven't been posting or visiting lately but my free time has been entirely spent at the hospital where my mothet still is, after having had three infarctions. She's much better now and I hope she will go home soon.
