London with little ones #6 Tate Modern

Thanks to Nanna (on the motorway) who generously gave us her winning tickets we visited the Lichenstein exhitbition at the Tate Modern, London.

It is a fantastic exhibition to take kids (and adults) to. I was delighted with how MJ took to the paintings. Lingering for a long time over the ones he liked best.

'Whaam' and 'Torpedo' were his favourites and he played with the postcards we purchased in the shop the whole way home. On arriving home he copied 'Whaam' and coloured it in and then pinned it to his notice board.

Looking at Lichenstein's artwork is also a great lesson in 'WOW' words. MJ informs me that 'WOW' words are interesting and exciting words, for example using 'gigantic' instead of 'big'!

Time is running out if you wish to visit it before it finishes. I would highly recommend it if you can.
