Art Splash at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

 

Have you heard about The Philadelphia Museum of Art's new summer program for kids? Their Art Splash program gives kids a chance to explore, create, and play through art and imagination.

Through this special program, the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s main building has been transformed into a special place where families can "Meet the Masterpieces" as select treasures from the Museum's collection come to life through gallery explorations, studio-art creations, and imaginative play for visitors of all ages. Upcoming events include:

Trip around the World - Now through Aug. 17, 2014

- Medieval Worlds - August 19–24, 2014

- Tea and Treasure - August 26–September 1, 2014

Do your kids like to cook?

On Wednesday August 20th, Stephen Starr Events & Catering along with Philadelphia Art Museum will host a kids cooking class as part of the museum's summer family friendly Art Splash programming.

At “Cook with Your Kids,” parents and kids will be able to participate in a fun, interactive cooking demonstration and learn tips on how to cook at home together from Executive Chef Gerald Drummond who helms the kitchen at the museum's Granite Hill restaurant.

The unique class will be located in Philadelphia Art Museum’s Cafeteria from 6:00pm-8:00pm. The class is $45, $40 for members and can be purchased online here. Children must be 6 years of age or older to participate.

Use Degree. Don't Sweat the World Cup!  

On our vacation, last August, we didn't visit 1 soccer stadium. Oh, no. We went to 3!

We saw Manchester United and Stoke City play at their home fields. We also took a side trip to tour Anfield, the great home of Liverpool FC. We don't get to England very often anymore, so my husband squeezed in as much soccer as he could into a two week period. We even visited the grassy field where my husband played football with his childhood friends.

Yes, we're BIG into soccer! My family has been looking forward to the FIFA World Cup for a long time, and we've had a lot of fun watching it with friends over the past couple of weeks.

The U.S. men's soccer team put up a great fight against Belgium! Even though they didn't win, they proved that they were a force to be reckoned with. It was very impressive!

This summer Degree Men and Walgreens have been cheering on the U.S. team as well. Did you know that Degree is the Official Deodorant of U.S. Soccer? Degree wants to reward fans who Do:More with a great offer.  Hurry and get to Walgreens today or tomorrow (7/4 or 7/5) and receive 1,000 Balance Rewards points when you buy 2 Degree Men Deodorant products.

Move more, play more and Do:More this summer with Degree!
