The kids had a blast at the Mutou Wood Tourism Factory [老樹根魔法木工坊] in Taichung City. I’m usually skeptical of any location with the words tourism factory in the title. They are usually dry, guided tours that always conclude with a gift shop. This one however gives you a bag of marbles with admission for some of the outdoor games, has some creative playground equipment for children, and a DIY area to construct and paint objects ranging from stools, pinwheels, and pencil holders. Most of the photographs here feature my son because my daughter was busy painting with her mother in the DIY area while Nathan was playing in the outdoor area.
