We had a lot of fun last October attending the Big Truck Day at the St. Louis Magic House and I thought since it was coming back around this weekend (Oct. 3rd-4th) that I’d share a bit about it. There is so much for kids at The Magic House itself that it is hard to believe they could add more fun, but they never cease to amaze!
You can’t miss all the big trucks outside when you first arrive. Some of the trucks your kids will be able to climb and discover are a crane, garbage truck, cement mixer, cherry picker, moving truck, a dump truck and more! Judah brought his friend with him on this adventure and the two of them went climbing around and scoping out everything from buckets to drivers seats.
Each of them had gotten a construction hat they could decorate with stickers. They had a table set up for all the kids to make their own helmets. After all, you can’t go out on the construction site without the right equipment!
Not only do the kids get to pretend to drive all the big trucks, but they can also go scooping in the big sandbox with lots of little trucks. There were a lot of children dumping, scooping and building with all the trucks in The Little Dig area. For kids who love trucks, this is a dream come true!
If you need to take a break, they have lunch available for kids. Not sure if it is the same this year or not, but last year there were hot dogs, chips, juice and rice krispie treats! You have to keep these truckers full of energy with all the big jobs to do! The area is really cute as it is cut off with caution tape and has little construction cones and signs on the tables.
After lunch you can keep playing outside or go inside since the tickets include full admission to the Magic House as well. You could spend all day there and still not see everything!
If you want to keep to the “theme” you can visit the Construction Zone on the lower level of the Magic House where the kids can wear their construction helmets, put on orange vests and get to work. Or head over to the Kids Village area where they can work on car maintenance!
Big Truck Day is 10:30am – 2:30pm on October 3rd and 4th. The Magic House itself is open until 5:30pm so you have plenty of time to have fun with the trucks and all the other amazing things! To learn more about Big Truck Day, head over to The Magic House. Tickets are still available so make sure to grab them while they’re there!
Have fun and bring a friend!
