Last Sunday, since my hubby had to work, I decided to take my daughter on a Mommy & Me outing. My daughter is really into horses (she’s a big fan of My Little Pony), so I thought it would be fun to go to the Japanese American National Museum to ring in the New Year & celebrate the Year of the Horse. Best of all, admission to the museum would be free that day, including all of the fun activities!
They had many arts & crafts for little ones at the museum. First up on our agenda was making a stick horse!
Then we strolled over to another table to make a horse wall-hanging. Chloe chose pink & purple since it’s her favorite colors. Currently it is being used as a door hanger on her bedroom door.
While we were there, I decided to peek into the museum’s Marvels & Monsters exhibit. It’s a fascinating examination of racial stereotypes in comic books that was especially prevalent in the 1940’s through the 1960’s.
Naturally my daughter wanted to save the best part for last. Outside of the museum, they were offering free pony rides. The line was a tad long, but it was worth the wait. She had so much fun!
We had a great time at the Japanese American National Museum & can’t wait to go back again!
