A Visit to The Charles M. Schulz Museum

Comic tiled wall

When we have the chance, our family likes to get to out and explore. Fortunately for us, we live in the Bay Area so there's a lot to do. This weekend we took the kids to the Charles M. Schulz Museum. There was something there for everyone (adults & kids), from art exhibits to drawing your own cartoons.

There's my comic loving son making a cartoon for the zoetrope.

The museum has a education room for kids where they can draw cartoons and fold origami snoopy houses. My children must have spent a good half hour in that room drawing.

Once they were done drawing the cartoons they placed them in the zoetrope to watch their cartoons come alive.

By the way, there's a great tutorial on Dollar Craft on how to make a zoetrope if you're interested.

Did any of you do anything fun for President's day weekend? Please share in the comments.

We were there in the afternoon around 1:00. When were you there?

Between 11 and 3. We must have walked right past each other at some point. :)

How cool! My kids would have loved that museum. We are big Peanuts fans here.

We spent our weekend per usual with sports andjust hanging out. Kids had to go to school on Mon to make up snow days.

I forget about those snow days. When I was younger I grew up on the east coast so I experienced them first hand.
