set up the ole skeeball machine for an event about kinetic art at the museum of art and history this last friday. fun times were had by many many children who are the biggest fans of the skeeball machine and the ones who are least shy about asking to play.
one enthusiastic little boy who hit me with a few skeeballs (no overhand throws, please!) told me it was “the best idea for a party. EVER.” this boy also declined the prize i offered to him after examining it for a moment: “i don’t want this, i just want to play for the fun.”
