After the lions have properly donned their holiday garb, the Art Institute invites viewers of all ages to head inside the museum for an arts and crafts session in the Ryan Learning Center.

More importantly, this year’s Wreathing of the Lion is totally free, making it a perfect way to get over your Thanksgiving food-hangover and officially kick-off holiday-time in the city.
