Drop-off art workshop at IKEA on Dec. 1st

Everybody loves IKEA; it's like a Wal-Mart set in the year 3100 - cheap, stylish, contemporary...and way too huge, brightlty colored and chaotic to shop with any real sense of purpose if you've got small children in tow. Last time I went, I was afraid my two-year-old would stab her brother in the eye with one of the golf pencils they give you to fill in item info - there's always a bit of "KRAAP" you'd like to buy in there. Tuesday of this week is the first day of December, leaving us 3 weeks to complete our X-mas shopping. The IKEA in Sunrise has always had a play area safe for leaving the kids, but next week at this art event, they can come away with some appreciation for the fine arts and their environment too. The Young at Art Children's Museum in Davie will sponsor a Go Green Workshop for ages 5 and up, 5 to 6 pm, December 1st. Admission is free and given on a first come, first serve basis. Kids will create their self-portraits using all recycled material.

Young at Art in Davie hosts a lot of cool, inspiring programs. My family got on thier mailing list after seeing the Dr. Suess and Alice and Wonderland exhibits they ran this year. The museum sent me notice of this event at IKEA and included info on IKEA's "Tiny Tot Tuesday." Once a week your child can choose a free menu item (if it's 99 cents) with any hot adult entree purpose. Swedish meatballs anyone?
