Spotlight Thursday: Fun Places to do Messy Art

Welcome to

My kids love nothing more than to make a mess.   While I am cleaning one room, they are destroying another. Its an endless battle of mom vs child.  So when Trekaroo’s very own Lydie came up with this list of Fun Places to Do Messy Art, I knew I had to spotlight it.

There are plenty of great children’s museums with spots for kids to strap on a smock and get out their need for making a mess through artistic expression.  But what I think is great about this list is that its also features some art museums such as the Museum of Modern Art and the High Museum of Art, that perhaps parents wouldn’t have thought would be an appropriate place to bring young children.  Another place on the list that came as a surprise is the Free Speech Monument in Charlottesville, VA .  Here kids can use chalk to draw, write poetry, or even just sign the large wall dedicated to celebrating free speech.  If your kids are like mine, they will have plenty to say.

Be sure to take a moment and check out the full list of Fun Places to do Messy Art here.  It features locations all around the country that welcome a little paint splatter and chalk dust.  If you know of a great place that Lydie missed, please let us know in the comments section so we can make the list even bigger and better!
