You may feel like you are in the middle of a three-ring circus at home as you juggle housework, meals and taking care of the kids. Now you have a chance to let the kids have a starring role under the big top somewhere else as Circus \u2013 Starring YOU! opens at The Children\u2019s Museum of Indianapolis. Parents get to play ringmaster as little ones learn how to juggle without bopping each other on the head and clown around with digital makeup activities \u2013 eliminating the mess. Speaking of dress up, there will be plenty of Instagram and Facebook photo opportunities with dress up activities that don\u2019t involve expensive items from your closet. Museum magic will allow families to look like they\u2019re being shot out of a cannon, flex their muscles by lifting foam barbells and sit atop a unicycle without falling off. What parent hasn\u2019t had a heart-stopping moment when they catch little Johnny or Susie climbing or walking atop something that is higher than they should? At this new exhibit, daredevils will be able to attempt feats of highly-skilled acrobats and athletes on interactives that are secure and low to the ground such as a virtual reality tight rope or test their balance on a rolla bolla. For a little extra excitement, families will be able to try out hoola hoop-looking lyra rings that are stationary. Those who want to keep their feet firmly planted on the ground will learn about the rich diversity of people, jobs and performances that make up the circus from the past to the present and check out circus artifacts from days gone by. Families can also get in on the act with this at-home circus activity: The Duct Tape Tightrope What you\u2019ll need:\u00a0 \tCarpeted area \tColored duct tape \tLarge plastic bowl \tTwo hardcover books \tBlindfold Directions:\u00a0 \tIn a carpeted area, place one strip of lengthy duct tape (10 feet or so) in a straight line on the floor. Gather the entire family for a test of balance! \tEncourage your beginner to practice walking forward and backward on the line. To increase difficulty, test how fast each of your family members can make it to the end of the \u201ctightrope.\u201d \tMake it a double balancing act for those who are more advanced. Just add items like a book and a bowl on top of the player\u2019s head and see how far they can make it without dropping an item or stepping off the walk! \tChallenge the most confident member of your family to the blindfold test. If they can stay on the line without dropping anything, they\u2019re on their way to be a tightrope-walking professional! Take your family balancing act to The Children\u2019s Museum, and find out what makes the circus so spectacular. Circus \u2013 Starring YOU! at The\u00a0Children\u2019s Museum\u00a0will be open Feb. 18 through March 25, 2018.
