Wonderland Express

This morning we checked out the Chicago Botanical Garden’s Wonderland Express. We try to go see it every year and each year I’m impressed by the detail involved. They make miniature renditions of Chicago buildings out of natural materials. Here is a picture of the Marina City, aka the Chicago Corn Cobs.









It doesn’t take long to see, but with the drive out and some lunch included you could make a morning out of it. A great idea if you want to get out of the house for a bit but it’s just too cold to play outside.

Afterwards they had an activity room where you could make natural jewelry or snowflakes out of coffee filters.
