Want to hear about my absolute favorite activity we did while in Myrtle Beach?
Every year we visit the Burroughs-Chapin Art Museum, which rotates all kinds of interesting exhibits. We've seen paintings by Audubon, a handmade quilt exhibit, and even one where Tibetian monks were there making mandala sand art. This year, though, the exhibit was the best I've ever seen and it was perfect for Little Crafter.
The BABAR'S WORLD TOUR exhibit features art from the children's book as well as hands on opportunities to explore the contries Babar visited. We were greeted by this sign and a special paper crown.
When I saw how they had recreated the airplane from the book, I knew we were in for something special.
First, we visited Spain, where you could dress up, play instruments, and watch a how-to video about flamenco dancing that ran on a four minute loop.
Next, we visited my favorite stop, Italy. First, we got to build the colosseum, which was a fun family project.
Then, Noah took me for a gondola ride.
Finally, he cooked for us in a little Italian restaurant.
...and in Cambodia where we got to look just like Babar.
