Toledo, Ohio for our first time to check out the Imagination Station. The Imagination Station promises visitors of
every age a multi-sensory experience that’s as fun as it is educational. About an hour from Canton it was a fairly decent drive to Toledo – although I would leave some extra time for parking which can be a little troublesome. It was a quick wait to get in and through the
admissions. There are a few add-ons for
admissions to check out such as special exhibits and the Simulator which can be found on the website or at the bottom of this post.

Hurricane feels like! Definitely nothing
we experience here in Michigan.
landing space for an egg. It was going
to be dropped through a tube at three varying heights to see if it landed
safely or if it broke. You had to build
the landing space out of only six pieces of paper and masking tape. My four year old did the experiment and our
egg did not break. She was so excited to
write her name on the board!
check everything out. We will definitely
be going back again! The Imagination
