“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

Creating Art: Infinite Space at Artechouse
Infinite Space at Artechouse For those not familiar with Artechouse, it is a thoroughly new kind of art space which blends art and technology. Art created with technology is meant to be experienced rather than observed. Infinite Space is the newest installation at Artechouse and it is very engaging for children and grown-ups alike. While many exhibits at Artechouse are interactive, this one is thoroughly immersive. The first room is the biggest and features three walls of breathtaking, ever-changing art. Watch as huge clouds gather around you, patterns swirl, and more. The floor is mirrored so the patterns appear nearly everywhere. Grab a bean bag chair or bench to sit and watch or venture closer to the walls to get an up-close look. Next, walk through a hall of mirrors to reach a room with three smaller rooms, each of which can be entered in turn. Each room has mirrors on three walls the ceiling and the floor. Moving patterns are projected all around you as you stand in each room. The final room in the exhibit is an infinity room. Enter with your family (or friends) for two minutes to be surrounded by mirrors on all four walls, the […]
It’s Dino Mania! Check out Dinosaurs at the Museum of Natural History and the National Zoo
Dinosaur mania is sweeping DC this summer and you do not want to miss out! After five long years, the dinosaurs have finally returned to the Smithsonian’s Museum of Natural History. The new Fossil Hall is nothing like the dimly-lit exhibit of the past. While the old Fossil Hall centered solely on dinosaurs, the new exhibit instead explores the concept of the dinosaurs as they existed in deep time and the role dinosaurs played in evolution as well as what they can teach us about modern-day animals. The exhibit also explores the extinction of the dinosaurs and ties their demise into the climate change we are experiencing today and the threat of extinction faced by other animals. Dinosaurs, of course, are the centerpiece of the large, brightly-lit Fossil Hall. Enormous fossils are posed in action much as they probably existed when the roamed the earth. The museum’s T. Rex is posed feasting upon a fallen Triceratops, with damage to the Triceratops’ skull evident. Rather than looking at dinosaurs as curiosities from the past, visitors are given an in-depth look at how they lived — and died. There are several dioramas throughout Fossil Hall as well as interactive exhibits, including one […]
