This week's Discover and Explore linky is Art & Museum Fun!
I'm a huge fan of taking kids to visit art museums. Yes! They will have a good time -- and NO! They will not ruin the artwork. I have taken my kids to art museums dozens of times and (other than a few slightly embarassing questions) we have never had any mishaps. Your 4-year old may ask why all the statues are naked, but that's part of the learning that goes along with viewing artwork :) And museums offer our kids a wonderful look into the creative minds and thoughts of others!
There are many types of art museums that you can visit - some have ancient art galleries (think mummies and greek sculpture), others have modern art pieces (which can lead to really great discussions with kids), and almost all museums will have paintings, drawings and photography. One of the things I love about an art museum visit is that it will appeal to kids of all ages, from toddlers to teens!
