Ah, Monday.  It’s hard to wind up a weekend.  Do we need to tell you why we don’t like manic Mondays?    Immortalized in song and lamented by parents worldwide, the beginning of the week is often accompanied by a long to-do list and a big question mark where your imaginative ideas should be.  We’ve got a few to get the wheels turning again and the week off to a smooth start.  So check out some fun things you can only do on a Monday and make Monday morning all you hope it can be (thanks Mamas and Papas!).

Storytime at LACMA

Inspire your miniature Monets with a visit to the Boone Children’s Gallery every Monday at 2:00 pm for staff-led storytelling. Plus LACMA admission is complimentary from 5:00 - 8:00 pm on Mondays (and everyday for NextGen members and their designated grownup). Full listing of program dates is on LACMA’s website. And after the sotrytelling stay and do a little Korean brush painting.
