I’ve been working with Savvy Savings & Scholarships to help spread the word about their great deals on family activities and attractions in several cities, but this week MY city finally is featured!
This week’s Nashville area deal is a great one. Buy a family annual membership to Discovery Center in Mufreesboro for just $37.50, a savings of 50 percent! This membership is good for two adults and two children, plus 4 free passes, perfect for bringing along the grandparents. We have not yet been to Discovery Center but it’s on my must do agenda for our school fall break in two weeks. It’s only about an hour drive from our house and I think my kids will love it.
If you have a little explorer, scientist, engineer, or artist at your house, Discovery Center has fantastic, hands-on exploration. Head to the Discovering Healthy Families exhibit and your child can delight in finding out if they can jump as high as a kangaroo. The Discovery Depot lets kids explore all things trains and, better yet, dress up as a real engineer. Newton’s Law and Super Slide lets kids make real physics experiments come to life and features a 2 1/2 story slide! (My girls will LOVE that!) Tennessee Live is an amazing hands on area where kids can touch and discover fish, snakes, and turtles in the living stream table. Creation Station is packed with paint, clay, chalk, paper, cardboard and everything in between to inspire kids to bring out their inner artist! Discovery Center also has great regularly scheduled programs, such as Animal Antics Tuesdays at 3:30 p.m. which features everything from corn snakes to bearded dragons.
Here’s a great video showcasing all the hands-on learning and fun at Discovery Center:
Not in Nashville? Savvy Savings & Scholarships has deals nationwide, from Atlanta to Washington, D.C. And better than saving money is the fact that 5% of your purchase will be donated to the preschool of your choice and 5% to a preschool scholarship fund for children in need.
