Every weekend we are looking for something to do with our 2.5 year old. With winter in full swing and him not being a total outdoors guy, coming up with new ideas is getting hard. Some days just running around a mall is good enough but we want him to have new experiences and have fun as a family.
By chance I was on the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts website and I saw that they had children’s workshops most weekends. And it’s all free! Intrigued we ventured downtown to see what it was all about.
It’s “A made-to-measure workshop for little ones (ages 2 to 5) and their parents. In this workshop, little ones will make up a fantastical story in full colour, inspired by Chagall, which they will then set it in motion.” Essentially we built a turning top.
Unfortunately our little guy wasn’t totally into it and so we helped him get excited about the idea and he did. (And gave him food) but every other kid was!
The craft itself was a bit advanced for a 2.5 year old. Cutting and poking a sharp object through paper but overall it was a fun. The next workshop included painting which was much more our speed but we didn’t participate.
What we loved the most was that it was free. I had no idea this was available and it’s really well set up. A definite recommend!
