Art Museum in May - Mummies and Scarab Beetles

Nat-decorating
The last two months, we have taken advantage of the free Kids Art program at the STL Art Museum. This month, the theme was MUMMIES, and I got the kids there in time for the tour of the mummies gallery. The kids got to learn a lot of interesting tidbits, such as what a mummy is, what they do with the organs (ew!), the sex of the mummy, etc. After the tour, the kids got to work on a free craft and create their own scarab beetle using Crayola model magic.

Here is how Nathan's turned out. They gave the kids a lot of different colors of the model magic. The model magic has sort of the same texture as playdough but a little more airy and it dries more solid.

Autumn LOVES playdough, so this craft was right up her alley. In fact, she got some more model magic this past weekend.
