Art museums may not be the most fun you can have if you’re five years old, but we thought of something that was a huge hit—acting out the art. The outdoor statue garden contained different-colored pipe people. It was very impromptu and kept going at the boys’ insistence.
“What’s your favorite color?”
“Stand by the statue that’s your favorite color.”
“See how the statue is standing and do the same thing. Pretend you are the statue’s shadow and decide how you should look.”
“Pick another color and be that statue’s shadow.”
Anthony and Stuart each wanted to be the shadow of every statue.
They had so much fun with this that the only thing that got us away from the statues was going for ice cream!
The main thing for me was watching the boys have fun being part of the art.
