Learning in Fun Places

I was able to take some time with my kids to go to two museums in the last week.  We went to Utah Museum of Fine Arts for their "Third Saturday For Families" event.  Did you know every third Saturday of the month you can take your kids (for FREE!) to do a different art activity each month?  I love it!  This month, we perused their collection that included some protest posters. Then we created our own posters to explore this art form. My little girl seemed to be protesting forced obedience. He he he.  My son's poster reads: Less School!  (Says the teachers son.  Sheesh!)  The museum also had Club Cultural Quetzalcoatl perform and my son got to learn the dances with them.  I love taking advantage of educational opportunities in the community.

The Leonardo Museum hosts excellent Educator Workshops that I love to get great ideas from.  My son came with me and we had a great time playing in their STEAM labs together!  

I'm getting some more inspiration for Discovery Adventures Preschool this coming fall!
