Making museum visits more interactive for your child
Ever since Sofi was a 18 months old, we have traveled with her. We would take her to museums to start exposing her to the world of art. When she got a little older we invested in a cheap digital camera just for her. When we now go to museums or on trips, she clicks away, making her experience more interactive. She takes photographs of all her favorite paintings & sculptures.
Most museums in large cities have books or pamphlets which make going through it more like a scavenger hunt. Whether it is looking for a particular work of art or sketching their version of the piece, it makes the experience all the more fun!
Tip: First thing to do is hit the gift shop & invest in one of these little treasures that will both educate & entertain!
