Museum of Art Hoot and Holler Family Creation Lab

If you’re following this blog, you’re probably also learning more about me and my family. Here is a fun fact. I love exploring new places and learning new things. And yes, I take my kids everywhere I can because I try to be a good mom and give my children lots of opportunities to learn and grow.

Apple Kids Hour: Playroom for your computer genius

When our firstborn was a toddler my husband and I made sure he had limited screen time (one cartoon per day), and we never let him use any electronic devices. We used our laptops, tablets and smartphones for work, but we made it very clear to our son that it was just that – for work. He wasn’t tempted to play with our gadgets.

Really, I’m not a hoarder – I need everything in those boxes. On a cool rainy day, if I don’t feel up for an outdoor adventure, I make a big pot of coffee, cover the dining table with plastic – the kids know what’s coming next. They yell “Art project!!!” and grab their aprons. We pull out paper, paint, glue, glitter, feathers, scissors, paper plates, pom-poms,...

Art for Young Minds

I grew up in the heart of Europe, in the capital of Ukraine – Kyiv. This city is over 1500 years old, and has incredibly rich history and culture – the depth of centuries, that is displayed in architecture, style and atmosphere. There are hundreds of museums and theatres all over the city. I probably went to the majority of them when I was small, and I remember those experiences well. When I close my eyes, I can almost feel the excitement and anticipation, and hear the crowds on the subway, as I’m holding my Dad’s hand, trying to...
