The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum and Bob the Builder

I wanted to bring this to the attention of my readers... Sounds like a fun new exhibit at the Ann Arbor Hands on Museum - Who wouldn't love little kids with tools!

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum invites aspiring builders and their families to connect with Bob the Builder(TM) and his Can-Do Crew as it plays host to the first-ever hands-on Bob the Builder – Project: Build It traveling museum exhibit. This 2,000 square-foot multimedia exhibit, inspired by HIT Entertainment’s top rated television series, Bob the Builder – Project: Build It, replicates elements from Bob the Builder’s world, inviting exploration, inspiring teamwork and bringing environmentally friendly building themes to life for children and families.

“Bringing Bob the Builder to regional families helps to inspire a fresh look at the world through hands-on fun with construction and eco-friendly building,” said Mel Drumm, executive director, the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum. “The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum is pleased to bring an opportunity to learn and explore to life with Bob the Builder, a popular children’s character that can help children get excited about learning.”

The Bob the Builder – Project: Build It exhibit will invite families to spend time in Sunflower Valley with Bob the Builder, Wendy and the rest of the Can-Do Crew. Children can practice their own fixing with kid-smart activities that build up their Can-Do attitudes and encourage them to be an active part of Bob the Builder – Project: Build It. Families can also work together to install new parts to sinks in Bob the Builder’s mobile home and in his building workshop, and learn about water conservation, courtesy of exhibit presenter Delta Faucet. Children and their families can help Bob build the vehicle shelter and experiment with tools in Bob’s building workshop.

Bob the Builder – Project: Build It will be at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum from November 1 to February 28. Special opportunities to interact with Bob the Builder will occur throughout the duration of the exhibit. Please check the Museum’s website for dates of special appearances by Bob. Bob the Builder – Project: Build It is sponsored nationally by Delta Faucet.
