HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I—The holidays are here! Celebrate with the Honolulu Museum of Art on Dec. 16 at Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday: Happiest Holidays

Families are invited to decorate star-shaped cookies with frosting and sprinkles.

For a less edible art activity, keiki can make a star-shaped ornament with pipe cleaners and beads. (There'll be plenty of supplies so kids can make a star for a friend or family member, too!)

Guests can learn more about the Filipino holiday Pasko with members of the Filipino Association of University Women (FAUW). Kids can view colorful parols (star-shaped Christmas lanterns) on display and make their own with bamboo skewers and colored paper.

At 10am, the Pacific Harp Project will perform for guests in one of the galleries. At noon, the rhythm and blues band Hook+Line will play classic holiday tunes for a sing-along. 

See the full schedule.

About Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday
Since 2004, the third Sunday of every month at the Honolulu Museum of Art has been free to the public, thanks to Bank of Hawaii. Each event features a program of art activities, entertainment and demonstrations held throughout the museum. See more information about the event.

Families can ride the museum’s free shuttle up to Spalding House in Makiki Heights, where the museum has more free art fun. Kids can join Nancy Kulp for storytelling and make colorful holiday wreaths.
