|Come to the SAM!|
|In this exhibit, each child could color a flower and add it to the wall (it looked stunning with all the walls covered). R can't color, but enjoyed gumming the markers.|
|She did enjoy using stamps to decorate paper.|
If you spoke in this room, different cartoon characters were projected onto the wall. The louder (and faster) you spoke, the bigger (and faster) the characters appeared.
|This light sculpture changed color based on your movements. I'm not sure exactly how it worked, but it was really beautiful.|
|R liked it too.|
In this section, children could fold origami flowers or leaves, then hang them on the wall to create a room covered in flowering vines. It was all in blacklight, so looked stunning. They had some extra origami all folded, so R got to participate despite her lack of hand-eye coordination.
This room, featuring a cake with velcro decorations that you could play with, was R's favorite (maybe it reminded her of her beloved refrigerator magnets?)
|The room also had numerous dolls to assemble/dress (heads, clothes, shoes, etc.), using velcro as well.|
|R getting into the spirit of things (she mostly liked the removal aspect)|
|Another coloring opportunity: this time R tried it, as the table was just her size.|
I actually did her hair! (because she ate baked beans for lunch and used her hair as a napkin, but I didn't feel like giving her a bath: it made the hair nice and crispy to the touch). Looks good though, right?
It was a lot of fun, and I highly recommend it to anyone with children (especially if they are a little older). Only downside: while asking for directions, I accidentally poked R in the eye (oops!), giving her a subconjunctival hemorrhage. Luckily she was fine and it didn't seem to bother her at all. Poor R, it can be hard to have a clumsy mother.
