On Saturday I mentioned that we were planning a family outing to a local art museum that was hosting a community day with free admission and activities for children. While I am by no means a fine art connoisseur, I enjoy viewing paintings, sculptures and other art and hope that our daughters will grow up with an appreciation for beautiful things.
The girls had a great time at the museum. The theme for the children’s activities was healthy eating. They glued magazine pictures of foods they liked on paper plates, did stamp painting with fruits and vegetables, created their own healthy snack mix from a host of options and did a scavenger hunt around the museum with healthy foods as the subject.
In different rooms, they got to make colorful butterflies out of coffee filters and clothespins (who knew?) and decorated and cut out pinwheels. We also took the opportunity to check out all the exhibits at the museum. To top off the free admission, we even found free parking just a couple of blocks away! Just the right price for adding a little culture to our lives!
