The museum partnered with Miami’s own Romero Britto for a special activity to give your little artists some professional instruction. In the how-to video, Britto is seen showing kids how to create their own version of his iconic “Heart with Wings” and then turn it into a puzzle. Click here to watch the how-to video.

The artist, known for his bold and colorful patterns, was born in Brazil but has become a Miami name – so much so that he has a star on Miami’s Walk of Fame and was named a Cultural Ambassador for the city. He’s also a longtime supporter of Miami Children’s Museum.

The “Museum At Home” program also offers other children’s activities, including cooking classes, story times and singalongs. Click here to see all the options.
