I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Children's Museum of the Arts

Me - The Children's Museum of the Arts, wow! This museum was a lot of fun. Even though I am not usually that interested in art, the art they had in this museum was cool. I liked the way the art was made. For instance, there were pictures made out of of pipe cleaners and puzzles, and a sculpture made out of sunglasses to name a few. I liked that the museum wasn't only a place to go to look at art other people created. It was very interactive. You could create your own art. You could paint. You could make a clay model. You could draw. You could create things out of paper and other materials. My sister and I both painted. Also, we made underwater models out of clay. With the clay, you are given instructions of what to make and how to make it but they don't always do the same thing every day. My sister made a rooftop garden out of a milk carton, paper and pipe cleaners. The museum is fun for all ages, and I would recommend it.
Mom - Pixelated: The Sum of Its Parts, the current exhibit at the Children's Museum of the Arts contains a lot of interesting art. Here are a few examples of what can you see in this exhibit:

This unique and fun exhibit shows that anything can be art. If you want to see this exhibit hurry down to the Children's Museum of the Arts as it will only be there through May 3, 2015. While you are there, your kids can create some unique art of their own.

And that's our view. What do you think it would be fun to make art out of?

Tune in tomorrow for Funny Friday.
