Tonight President Obama will take the stage at the Democratic National Convention with one goal — convince voters to elect Hillary Clinton as his successor.

The stakes are high for the newly minted nominee, but they are arguably even higher for the incumbent president. A Clinton win means that his policy legacy is kept intact and there's a validation of his tenure in the White House.

It's summer, and whether you're 5 years old or 105 it's time to play.

To inspire you, the NPR Ed Team called up leaders and designers at 10 of the nation's best children's museums and asked them one simple question:

What's the one thing under your roof (or maybe out back) that kids and their grown-ups love to do/see/touch/play the most?

Here are their answers, our summer "playlist."

1. Adventure Expeditions — Port Discovery Children's Museum, Baltimore.

President Obama likes to say he's run his last campaign. But he's determined to give Hillary Clinton a running start towards her own November election, mindful that much of his legacy depends on her crossing the finish line into the White House.

"I'm ready to pass the baton," Obama told supporters at a joint rally with Clinton in Charlotte, N.C. earlier this month. "I know she can run that race: The race to create good jobs, and better schools, and safer streets, and a safer world."

When Joe Biden takes the stage at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night, there is probably a part of him that still wonders, "What if?"

But his own White House dreams and reported rivalry with Clinton will have to be in the rearview mirror in order to deliver a home run endorsement, starting on stage and continuing through November.
