A Wild Party at the Taube!


We had such a creative fun-filled weekend...so much to share today! For those of you that aren't aware, the Taube Museum in town is not only a fabulous art gallery, but they also offer an opportunities to introduce children to the world of art and creation. One of the ways they do this is by holding children's birthday parties where the kids can create to their little hearts' desire.

My son's little friend turned 5 and invited us to his Madagascar themed party. The kids had a great time creating zebra hats, painting giraffes pictures and creating cute little penguins. The penguin idea was adorable. Simply use old black film cases for the body, felt pieces for the wings, Styrofoam for the iceberg and packing peanuts for ice chunks. Top it off with a colorful lid for the penguins pool! All of the projects are led by Margaret Lee, their education coordinator, and the kids have a blast. (Mom was kinda jealous of their art room...wish I had such a space!)

I highly recommend the Taube for your next birthday party!!
