These days in schools around the country, the arts are facing big cuts, and kids are missing out big time. Parents want their children to be exposed to art, so what can they do about it?
The answer: have a party!
Celebrate art by making it at home. There is so much you can do as a parent to help your child learn about the great works of art. One of those happens to incorporate a fun movie for your next family movie night: Mr. Peabody & Sherman!
I hosted a Mr. Peabody play date in honor of the Blu-ray/DVD release of the Mr. Peabody & Sherman movie!
The movie features time travel as Mr. Peabody and Sherman rush to fix history. Along the way they visit the Italian Renaissance, which most would agree is the greatest period in art history.
During this time, Leonardo da Vinci created the Mona Lisa. This great work of art comes to life in the film. To help your child learn about the Mona Lisa, why not recreate it at home?
All you need is the activity sheet below and:
