With thunderstorms being predicted here in New York, last weekend we decided to head to the Children’s Museum of Art.
The Children’s Museum of Art is a hands on museum focussing on engaging children in art. Although it is advertised as being suitable for children from 10 months to 15 years, there is definitely more things for older kids to do than kids in the 0-5 age range. That being said, Tate and Knox did still have fun doing the activities available for their age group!
Tate and Knox spent their time in the Wee Arts Studio – an area just for kids under 5. Here is the fun they had there:
One interesting part of the Wee Art Studio was a flubber station with flubber attached to a canvas on the wall. Tate found it a little bit weird and didn’t really want to touch it but Knox definitely loved it.
After the flubber, there was more to do in the Wee Arts Studio. Here’s a further look:
While we were at the Wee Arts Studio they also had singing and story time. Tate looked like he wasn’t quite enjoying it but he did get into the drumming after the initial singing was over.
After the Wee Arts Studio we had a look at the rest of the museum but there wasn’t really much to hold the interest of Tate and Knox as it was really for older kids. Tate did enjoy playing with the Pinpression though.
He wasn’t willing to try and do his face though!
The last thing at the museum to try was a ball pool. We thought Tate would love it because he loves the ball pit at the gym, but unfortunately he was just too hungry to spend too much time playing in there. And poor Knox was too young to give it a go as they said it was for ages 2 and up.
