Winter Wonderfest at Discovery Cube | @DiscoveryCubeOC #CubeWinter


Last weekend, I was invited to visit Discovery Cube's newest Holiday exhibits at their new Winter Wonderfest.  It doesn't snow often in Southern California and it was nice to get the kids in warm clothes and have a little snow fun.  Winter Wonderfest opens to the public tomorrow and here is a sneak peak of what you can expect.


There are several slides for kids of all ages.  There are little toddler size slopes all the way up to a 2 story steep slide that will leave you breathless!  

A snow area is available to build snowmen and throw a snowball or two.  We loved making snow angels!


If your little ones need a break from the cold, there is a great engineering area where kids can build race tracks for marble racing out of pool noodles and used toys.  What a great idea for a rainy day!


When you have had enough of the wet stuff, be sure to check out the Science of Gingerbread inside the Discovery Cube.  Every year, the museum takes entries for a friendly Gingerbread house competition.  A few of my favorites included Nightmare Before Christmas, Theme Parks, Eiffel Tower and so many more!


Visit the Gingerbread Derby to make your own edible race car.  Do you have scouts in your family?  This is a great dry run for the Pinewood Derby next month.  Fun scouting activity.

My little Sweet Tooth girl was intrigued by the Science of Sugar demonstration.  Her eyes filled with wonder as the scientist created her favorite treats.


Before you leave, there is a great interactive Science of Hotwheels exhibit where kids can prepare for a career in NASCAR pit crew, drivers and racing.


On our way out, we stopped to watch the Science of Snow show where the audience is invited participate with a special "snowfall" ending.

We enjoyed our time at Discovery Cube and we love how there are different exhibits all the time so every time we go, it never gets old.  How better to teach our children about the world except through hands-on science?

Thanks Discovery Cube for a fun winter outing.  We look forward to seeing what you have in the future.
