Imagine the Possiblities Play like an Artist the Wonder Room

 The Columbus Museum of Art has an amazing kids' space.  Their focus is play.  And everyone knows, I am all about play!  We visited this week to create, explore, and make.  One of the first things you see this this invitation to play beautifully arranged and full of simple materials.  Imagine the Possibilities is the title.  Kiddos are invited to create anything they want out of twist ties.  They can take their creation with them or leave it on display at the museum.  I think the idea of "displaying" their art is a confidence boaster to children.
 I like the saying Play Like An Artist.  In this invitation to play, children are given beads, mesh, tape to add on to two giant sculptures.

 In the Wonder Room, kiddos can dress up like forest creatures.  These are not your typical dress up clothes. No, sir.  Wonderfully created with scraps of different fabrics like some crazy quilt, there are fur feet and clawed hands and cloaks and masks.
 In another invitation to play, children are given a variety of materials to create their own bird nests.  I couldn't resist snapping a few photos of nests that had been created and left behind.

 Below is the bird nest creating table.
We will go back and explore some more soon.

Have a fun and playful day
