Now that is school is out it's time to start thinking of how you will keep your kiddos busy this summer. While they can certainly play outside, there will be days where it will be miserably hot. A great place to visit that will keep them cool and entertained is Discovery Gateway!

Plus, this year, they've partnered with the Utah Foster Care Foundation’s annual Chalk Art Festival, by planning both events to coincide on the same day!

My kids always love to play in the little grocery store area. That is a fave. But really, all of the museum is amazingly entertaining. Thanks for a chance at a great giveaway!

I have 5 kiddos so just being able to go to the museum w/o breaking the bank would be awesome! My 2 older kids have went on field trips there so it would be fun to have them show us all their favorite things!

If I won, my kiddos and I would be most excited for a fun escape from the heat in the summer and blistering cold in the winter.
