Although we had a pool date planned, clouds and chilly weather rolled in this past Tuesday, so my Minnesota mom friends and I took the kiddos to Toddler Tuesdays at the Mall of America. The theme was a western round-up, so our kids (all under age 4) danced to country music, and even met a princess (she was handing out free toothbrushes)! We took the kids on some rides, and while we were wondering around, this guy who worked at the new Ice Age Camp came up to us and gave us free tickets to go check it out that day. We took all the kids up to the fourth floor, and this experience was really cool!

Admission to Ice Age Camp is normally $10 for kids, and $4 for adults. There was so much for all of the kids to do at Ice Age Camp, that they were completely entertained for an hour (we had to go to lunch after an hour, otherwise we would have stayed)! Camp Ice Age is a touring experience that features interactive activities for kids of all ages, including climbing aboard a re-creation of Captain Gutt’s ice-ship, enjoying games in the Ice Age Carnival, taking a “movie walk” with highlights from the Ice Age movie, and meeting the costume character Sid the Sloth. Linna FREAKED OUT when Sid came out, but the other kids seemed to like him. I loved the movie (about 10 minutes) set up, as they had bean bag chairs all over the floor for the kids and adults to relax in. Our little ones loved the slide, basketball hoops, and the snowflake-making tables in the camp too. I am super happy we took advantage of the free tickets, because this experience was SO worth it! I hope these Ice Age Camp employees are handing out free tickets during the next few Toddler Tuesdays, because I think everyone should check it out! We'll definitely be going back.

I wish I would have gotten this employee's name. She was SO great with the kids!
