If you are looking for something cool to do with your kids on the weekend, here are some art around the world to check out – you’ll both have fun.
Although it gets heavy at times, contemporary art can be a lot of fun to experience with your kids. If you are in Paris, take a trip to the Palais de Tokyo, which is now open with its new exhibition spaces.

We’ve been there, and we tried all the complaining and whining and tricks we could think of to deal with the sadness of our school food – all but one: blogging about it.
