Recently we went to one of our favorite Autumn activities. Every October the Florence Griswold Museum has local artist create sculptures all over their grounds. This years theme was Of Feathers and Fairy Tales: Enchanted Birdhouses. There were over 44 birdhouse based on wonderful fairy tales. The boys had a great time studying the birdhouses and then trying to guess which fairy tale they were based on.
I love our discussion as we look at all the birdhouses. The boys are appreciating the different styles of art. They are gaining an understanding of how every person interprets the same story differently.It is really pretty awesome.
Also on the grounds they always have some type of fun pretend play for kids.
We also took part in an art class where the kids were to create their own birdhouses.
My boys have snow on the brain.....
This is our third year going, I guess making it a tradition almost. The grounds are so beautiful and peaceful. Easily one of my favorite days.
