“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

Beep Beep! On a warm spring day, the friendly tune of the ice cream truck might be just what you need. But when one particular ice cream truck starts to fall apart, the drivers have to fix it before everything starts to melt! Will our friends find a way out of this sticky situation? This highly physical comedy, features live percussion music and plenty of zany shenanigans. Help figure out how to fix up this ice cream truck where nothing goes right! Beep Beep! is about one thing every child can relate to: a love of ice cream. This very fun, short performance for young audiences follows a day in the life of two happy ice cream truck drivers. The play contains no words, except for the oft-repeated refrain of Beep, Beep! The story is told mostly through physical gestures that at times are hilarious to the toddler set, especially when a milkshake and bubble machine seem to appear out of nowhere to everyone’s delight. As an unexpected bonus, there is a third character whose primary role is play live music to accompany the two main actors. Kids sit on the floor to enjoy this performance and aren’t expected […]
Toddler Time at Badlands
Badlands Playspace in Rockville, MD seems to magically adapt to the desires of kids of any age, from tots to tweens, but Toddler Time is reserved just for the little ones five and under. During Toddler Time no detail is overlooked to make sure toddlers have the time of their lives. Some toddlers like to simply climb and roam while others like more creative and structured activities. No matter what kind of kid your toddler is, Badlands has you covered. Badlands is an enormous play area based on Badlands National Park with “boulders” of all sizes for kids to climb, crawl through, and slide down. The centerpiece is a giant mountain which many toddlers can climb without help. There is also a big climber, a grove of trees to run through, and a couple of open spaces kids are free to run around in. Some kids at toddler time climb and slide until the tire themselves out. There are also other rooms for kids to explore, including a Lego room and a room with soft blocks for toddlers. There is also a hands-on room with tons of opportunities for kids to explore, including a hammering station with a real hammer […]
Madame Tussaud’s Wax Attraction
Madame Tussaud’s Wax Attraction is legendary. With only a handful of locations internationally, even though Madame Tussaud’s is often thought of as a tourist destination it’s worth a visit for locals as well. Madame Tussaud’s is divided into several distinct sections, each with its own theme. The first wax figure you will encounter is that of Madame Tussaud herself in the act of creating a wax figure. Visitors can watch a video in this section to learn more about Madame Tussaud and the history of the attraction. Next, visitors enter an exhibit of all 45 presidents. There are also sections dedicated to entertainment, including musicians and movie stars. The final section is dedicated to sports figures. There are also other historical figures from US history sprinkled throughout the attraction, such as the founder of the Girl Scouts, Juliette Gordon Low, and Harriet Tubman. Madame Tussaud’s is not a museum, but there is a lot to learn. Every wax figure is accompanied by an explanation of who the figure is and why they are significant. I learned a few new things along the way and my children learned a lot, particularly about presidents. The attraction is filled with interactive exhibits. Although […]
