Hands-On Art Encourages Appreciation in Reluctant Viewers

Try making this project with your tween: Hang an apparatus from the ceiling with a huge parachute attached. There are no instructions, just buttons and levers around the display. He learns if he pushes button 1 and pulls lever 2, the parachute inflates. Lever 3 and button 7 produce a loud sound and set the display awhirl. This is discovery art and more fun than the "stuffy" museum.
