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

The Youngest Children Help Wake Up Brother Bear at Imagination Stage
A live performance where children are not expected, or even encouraged, to stay in their seats is a dream come true for the five-and-under set. A live performance without any seats is even better. Imagination Stage knows what appeals to the youngest theatre-goers in Wake Up, Brother Bear!, the latest show in their popular My First Imagination Stage series. By allowing children to sit on a circular cloth that doubles as a stage, children are able to be a part of the show rather than spectators. Being close to the action, and armed with a bag of child-sized props upon arrival, children are help the actors tell the story of what happens to Brother and Sister Bear throughout the course of four seasons. Children become a part of the action from the very first moments of the performance when Sister Bear, invites them to help wake up Brother Bear, who is still hibernating from the long winter. Once both Bears are awake they discover their springtime environment by watching a butterfly visit a flower held by each child and exploring a water created by children holding long pieces of blue cloth.

Cartography at the Kennedy Center
With recent headlines, many adults and children alike may wonder what the refugee crisis is really like. How can another child ends up having to leave home and spend days without where or how their next day will be like, or where? Cartography seeks to explain what leads some people to leave their homes and seek a new refuge. Told through the stories of five different refugees seeking asylum in the United States, Cartography explores the refugee experience through the eyes of families seeking to escape the effects of climate change, poverty, disease, and war.

The play explores the mundane and the outright terrifying: From waiting, sometimes for months, at different boarder checkpoints; to suddenly risking all sorts of dangers and injuries, often life-threatening. The play also explores the acts of human kindness refugees find along the way and how they form […]
