“I have been a member of OurKids for a long time and I love it! I check the site every Thursday/Friday as we are getting ready to plan our weekend. When I hear about an event in DC from other sources, I go to OurKids.com to get more details and sure enough it is posted there. You guys don’t miss a thing. Congratulations for having such great enterprise!” — Carmen C.
“Thanks for all your hard work on the website/Facebook/Instagram and with all the lists, giveaways, etc. You are my go-to and I can’t imagine the amount of time and energy it takes to do what you do so that (clearly) half-there moms like me don’t have to. I truly and honestly appreciate it. You are awesome.” — Stephanie T.
“I LOVE your newsletter and all the work you do to provide us with the activities going on around the region. It’s basically THE source of info I use to plan our kid’s activities. And because of your newsletter, we just found the amazing Goldfish Swim School of Reston. Our girls love it and we were looking for a place like this for the longest time. Anyways, just wanted to let you know I appreciate all you do!” — Naomi K.Sign Up For Our Newsletter Here

Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow, and Green at the Hirshhorn
The Hirshhorn hosts great family events and this one is good for tweens and teens. In RIRKRIT TIRAVANIJA: (WHO’S AFRAID OF RED, YELLOW, AND GREEN) DC area t(w)eens will able to see the protests they hear so much about translated into art before their eyes. WHO’S AFRAID OF RED, YELLOW, AND GREEN is a completely new concept for the Hirshhorn in many ways. This exhibit is not yet complete — and won’t be complete until it closes. Instead, local artists literally draw on the walls of the gallery with charcoal while visitors watch the exhibit take shape. The exhibit features overlapping images of protests from DC, Tiravanija’s native Thailand, China, and around the world. The images are all based on photographs that have appeared in newspapers but the artists are free to choose which photos they use as a basis for their drawings. Visitors are also invited to add their own works to the walls if they wish. The idea is that by the time the exhibit closes there will be so many drawings on the walls that the walls will be completely black. Another aspect that makes this exhibit a first-of-its kind is that it is also […]
Escape from Peligro Island at Imagination Stage
Escape from Peligro Island at Imagination Stage is no an ordinary play. In this choose-your-own adventure play things play out differently nearly each time it’s performed. Normally a review of a play involves a description of the story, but in this case it’s impossible because the version you see may be completely different from the one I saw. All plays center around a child named Callaway Brown whose Mom lives on one continent and his Dad on another. After that it’s hard to say what will happen next. The play I saw was an underwater spy adventure, but Callaway could also end up battling vampires, in the wild west, or becoming a superhero in space. There may be a talking horse or time travel. There are 70 different ways this play could go. I was in awe knowing that the actors had mastered so many storylines and were able to perform the selected ones seamlessly with only five seconds notice. The video is Peligro Promo 1 from Imagination Stage on Vimeo. How does this work? Upon entering the theatre each viewer is given a paddle with red on one side and blue on the other. Every time the audience is […]
What’s Happening In May
It’s spring! Time to head outdoors and get out and about to explore what’s new. Here are some top finds for May. Pajama Party Movie Night: This fun annual tradition at Hillwood Museum, Estates, and Gardens is a great way to enjoy Hillwood’s beautiful grounds with your family. Bring a picnic from home or grab an express dinner on-site. Before the movies begin, kids can also explore the mansion and complete an art project. This year’s theme is Animal Antics. PJs, pillows, and blankets are encouraged! Catch a Nats Game!: The Nationals have 10 home games in May with tons of promotions including Firework Fridays, beach bags, and bobble heads. In May, kids can run the bases after the game on May 19th and May 26th (and throughout the season). A day at Nationals Park is a great way to spend the afternoon and there are plenty of ways for kids to have fun besides watching the game from meeting the Presidents to playing in the newly expanded PenFed Kids Fun Zone playground, and lots of new kid-friendly food options. Peek Inside Embassies: Go around the world without leaving DC. Check out the Around the World Embassy Tour on May […]
