Our Trip to the Met

Take your kids to museums! Start early and do it whenever you get the chance— especially if you are near a large city with plenty to see. The sense of history and the need to make art throughout is an awe inspiring experience. Here are some of the things we saw at The Metropolitan Museum of art in NYC. Our favorite galleries this trip featured Ancient Egypt. Aren't near the Met? Look for art in your town— sculptures in parks, architecture, murals, graffiti, the shapes that appear in playground structures, manhole covers... Take a nature walk and view the sky, the tiny patterns found on leaves, stone, and trees. Notice how things appear differently out your window during different seasons. Art is everywhere.
