Kids get all kinds of stuff they like, so why follow the crowd and give little Stevie or Suzie dollies or dinosaurs when you could give them the gift that keeps on giving, like a subscription to the Kale of the Month Club? Sure, you may have to explain to iddy-biddy Betty what kale is, but what kid doesn't want more iron? If the personal touch is more your speed, why not spend some time with the little bundle of joy? Children love the zoo, the Science Center provides no end to kid-centric entertainment, and Port Discovery is sure to please, but they've probably already been to those places. I bet they haven't been to the Aberdeen Room Archives and Museum and thrilled at the historical documents relating to the rise of Aberdeen, from a simple farming community to a thriving place to stop for gas while headed north on 95. Kids today are just crazy for historic surveyors records. Alternately, how about a visit to La Plata and the African-American Dentistry Heritage Society Museum? Imagine the fun of a trip to the dentist's office with the thrill of quietly learning, and remember, when planning for kids, the more words it takes to describe a museum, the more fun it's gonna be!
