If you’re still sweating it out for last minute gift ideas then you’ve obviously aced the procrastination portion of the holidays. Feeling festive can be a grind, worthy of Grinch like fails, leaving you shopping last minute for that something special. Stakes are high- you want a memorable gift, something that the person will actually use. In the age of disposable everything, why not reward that person with something that actually lasts?
Time spent together is truly the path to perfection. So why not incorporate some edu-tainment into the mix? We’ve been proud members of the ROM for the past year and enjoy their family programming (and the odd FNL out sans enfants!) enriching my brood’s young minds (as well as ours) with their excellent exhibits all year long.
While the stellar Chihuly is coming to a close, there’s plenty more on deck for the family during the break for ROM for the Holidays. Closed only on Christmas Day means the ROM is the place to be for the winter break. Hands on workshops for arts and craftsy types, interactive shows with Sonshine and Broccoli, Chihuly inspired balloon sculptures, and animal interactions are only the beginning. The stellar exhibit Wildlife Photographer of the Year is back- a mind blowing gallery of the best shots of 2016.
And yes, of course the dino’s will be on deck, as well as other ROM faves like the bat cave, or my fave, the Galleries of Africa: Egypt with an actual coffin of Djed-maat-es-ankh, a woman who met an untimely dental related death eons ago.
