Though it may not be the most obvious place to bring your toddler or young children for a day trip, it was the best thing I ever did. Not only was I completely inspired by experiencing the artwork, the kids absolutely loved it. Creativity flowed from both the outdoor space and indoor exhibits.
For any stay home moms that need to give your child a creative outlet, check out Lakeshore Learning Store free craft every Saturday. I visited the Carson location and it’s a great resource store for parents and teacher looking for educational tools. Every Saturday, a few craft tables are prepared with the materials for the project of the day. You can show up and a store staff will help you and your child learn to make a project together. I like that the craft time is from 11am – 3pm, and you can drop by anytime.

YAY for messy! Being an artist myself, I love a place where you can exercise your creative spirit without having to care about making your hands or your clothes dirty. Art zone, located in Hermosa Beach on Aviation is a little art studio for little kids.
I love this place because it has a personality of its own. There are many stations inside the studio allowing for a child to explore with different textured materials and experiment with different art mediums.
