“It’s raining outside and I have nothing to do,” says everyone. Sometimes it’s hard to get up the motivation to leave your house on a dreary, wet day. However, these days can often be some of the most fun to push yourself to do an activity. I am here to today to give you an idea on a fun activity to do, especially with kids. Well, it’s mostly for kids… Anyways, it’s the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling.
This museum was developed by the Broadway Housing Community as a demonstration of their ?devotion to art and storytelling as a way to create a sense of community among the neighborhood. They also wanted to actively address the needs of underprivileged kids facing poverty and homelessness. The museum works to help children cultivate their natural artist by not only having them see and hear art and stories, but use their stories to create art.
The museum offers places for kids, mainly ages 3-8, explore the world in many ways. They have sections for viewing art, sections to hear stories, and studio labs where they can take what they’ve explored and use it as inspiration for their own art. Lastly, the museum offers a reading nook for parents to take time to read with their child. The storytellers like to engage the kids through many different ways like props, theatre, and music. Getting them engaged allows them to understand and listen better. The Sugar Hill Children’s Museum is by far one of the best children’s museums in Manhattan. With a focus on diversity, education, and creativity, kids can be free to learn about themselves and the world.
