“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

Circus at The Puppet Co. Theatre
The Circus is in town — but this one stars puppets! Circus is the perfect showcase for master puppeteer Christopher Piper to display his considerable talent and creativity with an array of incredible feats of puppetry. Some of the puppets have really stood the test of time asthey were made by Piper’s father, Len Piper, well before the Puppet Co. was founded 35 years ago. Circus opens with Piper taking the stage dressed in full Ringmaster attire accompanied by a lovely assistant. Just like in a real circus, all acts take place within the circus ring. The first act features a seal that Piper controls with such precision that the puppet really seems to come to life. My son was convinced that he was watching a live seal performing rather than a puppet. Another highlight of the show is a bear that performs a variety of tricks with a wand that he balances and throws in the air in ways few puppets can. My son’s favorite act was a wolf that Piper has to cajole into performing. Another crowd favorite was an unusual act involving Indiana Smith demonstrating feats of bravery with his ability to pop balloons with his whip […]
The Ballad of Mu Lan at Imagination Stage
In The Ballad of Mu Lan at Imagination Stage, Mu Lan has been a hero for centuries and in the version currently playing at Imagination Stage, she is the epitome of Girl Power for the modern girl. To recap the story, in ancient China each family must send a male to fight in a war. Some families are able to send young boys with no strength and some can only send old men. In Mu Lan’s family, the only male in the household is her old, frail father. Her father is willing to go to war, but Mu Lan decides that even though she is a girl she is more capable to go to battle and decides to take her father’s place – disguised as a boy. It is not easy for Mu Lan to keep her secret, or to prevail in battle, but Mu Lan eventually finds her footing and wins the war. However, her glory is short-lived because she is outed as girl and brought before the Emperor to receive her punishment for daring to be a girl who has gone into battle. However, the Emperor turns out to be more open-minded than most and offers Mu Lan […]
Erth’s Dinosaur Live Show and the PANDAs Movie are at the National Zoo All Summer Long – And a MEGA Giveaway
If you are raising a family in the DC area you are no doubt already familiar with the National Zoo. You probably already know where to find the elephants, pandas, and lions. But, you may not know that this summer the zoo is being transformed and has declared the summer of 2019 Dino Summer! Now through August 31st you won’t be able to walk along the zoo’s main path without running into a huge, larger-than-life, moving dinosaur. This summer only the zoo is being invaded by animatronic dinosaurs that look and move like real dinosaurs – including one that squirts water at unsuspecting visitors. Seeing the animatronic dinosaurs is completely free, but there is also a Erth’s Dinosaur Live Show that is well worth the admission fee. In the live show, audience members come face-to-face with dinosaurs ranging from new hatchlings to a full-size T. Rex. The dinosaurs in the live shows are puppets, but they are handled so masterfully that some children (including mine!) will believe wholeheartedly that they are real, living dinosaurs. This show is designed for kids and is highly interactive with plenty of opportunities for kids to be invited up to the stage to pet the […]
