Make it: Paper Crowns, Foam Buildings and Monster Drawings...

This is a medley of make it's from our weekend outing at MassArt's Family Day. Twice a year the students at MassArt open a gallery and fill it with interactive activities centered around the art and installations. It was our first time going to the Family Day and it was a wonderful event. All of the art education students were great with the kids and Oliver particularly loved being able to ask question and even activate some of the works. Their were also crafts. Oliver and I made a cool Max from the "Where the Wild Things Are" inspired crown and he also helped draw a monster as well as build his own foam block sculpture.

This has to be one of my favourite aspects of living in the city. Nearly every weekend we can find something to do out and about in the city. From art museums to ski trips to bookstores and new lunch spots there is so much to explore. So finding a fun family centered event like this at MassArt was perfect for us this past weekend.
