I love exploring our new town and finding fun things to do. It is always my quest to try something new on Saturday and today we hit a jackpot! I read that the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa was having a free family fun day today, so I took the kids. I was a little worried that they would be bored or too loud since it was at an art museum but oh my goodness, it was so amazing!
First of all, we drove through the most beautiful historic neighborhood in Tulsa with the prettiest autumn trees I have seen here to get to the museum, which was in the middle of all the big beautiful houses. I felt like I was on a movie set. Then we walked in and there were lots of kids and so many activities for them, but right in the middle of this big, lovely art museum! We went on a guided puppet storytime around the art, made tissue paper paintings and turkeys, got free art kits to take home, watched a movie about children's art, and got to see some of the beautiful paintings.
The best part was the scavenger hunt around the most lovely, sprawling gardens. Ethie had a blast finding each of the sculptures or architectural landmarks and making crayon rubbings of the small stone replicas they had placed beside them. We spent about 2 hours exploring the beautiful gardens, while the kiddos were so entertained looking for landmarks, and I got to just enjoy the perfect weather, cute company, and gorgeous surroundings!
