it rained at this cherry blossom festival

but we didn’t know and didn’t care until it was time to leave
because it was gorgeous inside!

the great hall of the National Building Museum put us in a very blossomy mood as the girls made mini shoji screens.
trying on colorful kimonos...
...and geta (traditional japanese sandals).
the crafty folks from the Textile Museum helped us to make puffy cherry blossoms with a little fabric, batting and thread. cute!

check out the Textile Museum’s monthly Art for Families programs for more family fun crafts.

until next year: sayonara! さよなら!
