One in Every Color-Dots

Dot magnets that is. Today we went to the Fresno Metropolitan Museum of Art. They had some fabulous exhibits up!

Have a Ball! - combines an arcade, amusement park, miniature golf course, playground, sporting event, laboratory, and science fair into an educational, hands-on science exhibition.

Bob the Builder-Project: Build It!-Just for youngsters, this exhibition strives to educate visitors on the importance of environmental issues with hands-on and interactive exhibit stations

I Want Candy: The Sweet Stuff in American Art- Want Candy consists of 54 works of many media types, providing a social commentary on candy and its effect on our culture and our lives. (Just beware the naked woman eating chocolate.)

Doug Hansen: Mother Goose in California- This enchanting exhibition of illustrations takes Mother Goose away from the English countryside to explore the Golden State of California. (Great for ABC practice!)

Brain Teasers 2-Brain Teasers 2 offers 20 challenges for puzzle enthusiasts of all ages. (Super hard, the kids helped me out big time on these ones.)

Last but not least, the gift shop. Where I found these beauties.

And there's one in every color. I took them out and started playing with them on the cookie sheets that are supposed to be serving as trays for the felt flowers.
We didn't like the funny shade of green. It didn't fit. So we sent it to Siberia. Then, the mush pot. Mush mush mush.

Glad you liked the museum. It is definitely a treasure that more Fresnans need to visit on a regular basis. Our moms' group is going there in 2 weeks!

It was fun to play with the dots and get them in "the right order!" Now you need a beautiful refrigerator... and a kitchen...and a house....
