One of our favorite places to visit is the Young at Art Museum @youngatartmuseum. It’s a great place for interactive and creative activities for kids of all ages.
He loves airplanes and loves to make them every chance he gets and with anything he can find.✈️Here’s his B-52 bomber he made from recycled materials. As we were leaving the museum one of the attendants asked him to explain what he made. After he told her that it was a B-52 bomber with gunners, engines and cargo space she asked if she could take pictures of his B-52 to show others and her friend who builds airplanes ✈️ 📚📸Proud Mommy Moment✨This is going to be an awesome summer and can’t wait to see what else he creates.
Once we got home he wanted to build a runway with for the plane to take off. The plastic table cloth used for the arts and craft table and his coloring pencils ended up being the runway and the guide path for the plane to travel through. I don’t know how he comes up with these ideas but it’s going to me a busy and creative summer.
