It wasn’t as pretty as usual in Auckland today, so we headed below the deck to the fabulous and interactive Kelly Tarlton’s Sea Life Aquarium.
Identifying all the different fish was fun, but making them come to life was the highlight of the day.
First, you color a sea creature.
Then you scan them and they come to life in the digital aquarium. There are about four coloring stations, each with its own aquarium.
Then your sea creature joins the rest of the fish in an aquarium of all of the digitized drawings. Kids catch on quickly and make sure to put their names on each creature so they can track their progress on the screen.
This was truly an ingenious idea and fun for all ages. There were definitely a few grownup fish swimming around in there.
