On the third Sunday of every month The Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit has a free Family Day where kids can work on various art forms that highlight their current exhibitions. I don't know how this passed by me for the last three years, but it was so great! Today's activities were collaging with old National Geographic magazines and making stuffed animals out of disembodied stuffed animal parts. I know, rad, right? Erika found a National Geographic from 1969 that was all about the first manned landing on the moon. She has been really interested in space lately, so this was perfect for her.

This was her other masterpiece. It needs no explanation.

Audrey loved the collaging (mostly the glue sticks) and the overhead projector where you could put together faces (see above). I can't wait to see what they have in store for us next month.
